Well, the reunion is over for another year. There was indeed plenty of food, including such goodies as sausage balls, chipped beef dip, stuffed jalapenos, cheese dip, chopped spinach dip, 7 layer salad, egg salad sandwiches, various crackers and chips, smoked sausage links, grilled hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans, banana pudding, vanilla ice cream, and homemade PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES!!!
There was probably some things I missed, but it is so hard to remember everything when there is so much. It was , of course, all buffet style with people pretty much snacking all day long. Plenty of talking, remembering, kids running and screaming. Ever notice that the amount of fun kids are having seems to be proportionate to the amount of noise they make? The more noise, the more fun! In the middle of all the madness and mayhem, the two roomies were soaking it all in and having a good time with the scraps getting dropped on the patio.
To cap off the evening and before the coals died all the way down, Mom went and got some wire coat hangers, had someone straighten them out, and proceeded to show the Grand daughter and grand nieces how to roast a marshmallow. It was an interesting experience, but something was lost in the translation, as a charcoal grill just isn't the same as a campfire and the girls were too tired to see the fun in it all.
The day finished at a reasonable time, it didn't rain, everyone got along, and the children did very well right up to time to go home...and then they fussed a little. But they were tired ( as were we all) so that was understandable.
Now I'm tired and ready to go to bed...the roomies are staying outside tonight because they don't want to come in and I'm too tired to argue with them, and tomorrow will be a good day to watch the weather. Sorry I'm rambling tonight, but I should be back on the ball Monday.
See you all Sunday morning and we will share a cup of coffee, OK?
