Wellllll we had a great family get-together! The family arrived around 1 p.m. The kids had fun…playing games and running around the house. Dylan stayed over on Saturday night with some of his friends so they were WIDE awake (uh huh). Dylan had his ballgame on Saturday (I will have to post those photos in a bit…still going through them). We had BBQ and Hot Dogs…seems to be the family favorite. Not sure by choice or not! Easiest to fix I suppose! Everyone knows I am the big chef around here.
About half of us dressed up for the party. My "blast" was an astronaut – perhaps I should have said "blast off" The weather was GREAT. A bit of a chill in the air but nothing you wouldn’t expect in late October. We even had a frost overnight! 34 degrees here at my house. That was the coldest temperature so far this season. Now if we could just bring in some snow! I don’t know how I manage to fit the weather into all of my posts. Habit I suppose!
Anyway here are a bunch of photos from our get-together.
