Yesterday, we honored the fathers in our family.
It was a casual gathering with lots of good food. Crab dip and crackers and a veggie tray to get us started. Chick-fil-A chicken strips, Mom's potato salad (by special request...again), a colorful tossed salad, deviled eggs, sweet potato biscuits (made by Maddie and Owen). Four desserts. No one walks away hungry at our family gatherings!
We reminisced and told stories about family vacations.
We gave tokens of love to the dads.
We passed around some more old photos.
Kati took some photos of a "visitor" on our porch.
Kristin and Owen played a piano duet.
The kids all piled on our bed to watch Puss and Boots on Netflix.
We braved the heat and humidity to take some family photos.
Later in the evening, Ron's mom, his brother Max, and sister-in-law Pat stopped by for a visit and we had more cake and coffee and lots more conversation.
