When he returned we had a light breakfast, showered, and got ready for the day. He worked at his desk while I cut-up lettuce, tomatoes, and onions to put on the hamburgers at Jamie's picnic. I also made us salads for lunch.
I got a surprise phone call from Noela and we had a very nice chat. They are on an almost 2 week camping trip visiting their children and 2 of Ernie's sisters. I downloaded and printed the images I had gotten earlier today off Pinterest and then worked on this blog. It was 12:15 and the sun still wasn't shining! What is that about!
Did get a message from Rick and Joyce and they drove the entire way back to their home in Venice yesterday driving from 2:30 AM to about 9 PM. That is a lot of driving, but I am sure they are so glad to be back home! They need to rest after such a busy week here in PA!
Ken and I left at 12:45 to go to Jamie's for the family picnic! Jamie's family only got home from Rehobeth Beach at 11 AM, Dane mowed, and Jamie got ready for our picnic - unbelievable, for they were relaxed and ready when we got there.
The day was overcast and a bit cool (sweatshirts felt good most of the time) but we spent the entire day outdoors. No games for the family today, just lots of talking and sharing. I spent most of the time crocheting while listening and adding my "2 cents" every once in a while.
|Memorial Day just wouldn't be complete without their red,|
white and blue tattoos!
|I guess make-up goes with tattoos also!|
|Sampson enjoys being with the "boys"!|
|The girls all made an appearance after Bria did their make-up!|
|With their eyes closed, you can appreciate her make-up job!|
|The adults were having a good time just relaxing and sharing!|
|Not many folks have such a great setting off their backyard|
when they live in town!
Jamie had purchased the hamburgers and the "firecrackers" (jalapenos stuffed with hot sausage, cheese, and then wrapped in bacon) at a local butcher shop and they were delicious. Ken and I left around 8, watched a little TV and were in bed by 9 to do some reading.
|These firecrackers were very good and not too hot!|
|The girls enjoy having their own table!|
|The adults enjoy their time together too!|
