Techno guy and Mr. Inquisitive, fired up the grill and made us wonderful veggie filled meatloaf burgers. Both of these fellows are grillers extraordinaire. The dog enjoyed a couple that got a little crisp and we devoured the others.The girls from both families made triple chocolate cupcakes for Cowboy's party. They also made strawberry and orange Julius's for themselves and their younger siblings.
Mommy 2 made a delicious meal of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, and green beans. It was wonderful, one of my favorite of her meals and to have her cook it in my kitchen was even better.
CowboyIn addition to eating, our young people played card games on the living room floor and they rode horses. Some worked on repairing a shed and helped with gardening and mowing. Then they went to play in the river. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! There were lots of wet clothes, dirty jeans and boots, dirty dishes and laughter.
I am very thankful for the opportunity to fellowship with such exceptional young people, including the star couple, Lost In Space and Lost in a Dream, who made wedding plans and honeymoon plans when they were not supervising swimming siblings. I pray that these lovely times will remind us all when difficulties come, just how much we need the love and interaction of our friends. I pray that my children will remember being loved and encouraged and just having some fun as they were growing up.
Friendships for a lifetime, fellowship for eternity and we get to enjoy it now too!
Enjoy your loved ones today.
