Yesterday was a good day.
Weeded the little garden, added tomato cages, and picked my first cucumber… yahoo!! I now have lots of tomatoes (still green), banana peppers (very small), and a teensy-tiny baby watermelon (which I accidentally stepped on, but hopefully it’ll overcome its childhood trauma and get big anyway).
From left to right: The little garden in its entirety; banana peppers; roma tomatoes; and an (abused) baby watermelon
The S-Dans came over for a cookout… great fun!
The ladies gabbing on the deck;
The kids and hubbies running about the yard;
Julie meets Dramatic Mag (right before she found Julie’s sunglasses and got happy)
Dance Party, Rettew house, 11 o’clock!
Drew’s little Karrigan shows off her dance moves. Check out her shirt & shorts, compliments of Sue. The shorts were a little large, so she’s sporting the “gathered” look to keep them from falling off :)
And the aftermath… which actually wasn’t that bad, thanks to Julie’s insistence on cleaning the kitchen :)
The Chins check out the firepit debris (and yes, Oscar managed to unearth & gulp a half-burnt s’more);
Dishes in the sink… the left side is clean (thanks Julie & Jennifer!), right side is disgusting;
The beer cooler this morning. Anybody up for a after-party beer drinkathon?
