It was so hot here in Southern Indiana yesterday! How hot was it? Well, lets just say the high for the day was like 93 with the heat index 103, and sunny! The beer was cold, the food was great and Kate and Will’s party went off without a hitch!
I have a bunch of photos to share, but first let me explain something . . . I don’t necessarily have people pose. I sneak up on them and call their name. I love getting them when they are not expecting it.
Before we cut the cake or anything, there was plenty of food. The guys did a great job on the grill and we had all kinds of salads, baked beans, deviled eggs . . . . actually way to much!
The cake . . . of course there’s a bit of orange for Tennessee. For goodness sake the dog is named after the football stadium!
Of course, we had to have the cutting of the cake, which by the way was lemon with strawberry swirls. Mallory and I definitely broke all diet rules.
This little guy is my nephew’s son, Jackson. He couldn’t wait for the cake to be cut. He’s also a little ham. I took his picture and he made the face. I told him he looked just like his dad did when he was his age. I don’t think we have a picture of Jeremy when he was small where he didn’t make some kind of dorky face. Of course, once the first picture was taken it was do it again.
This is my nephew Jeremy, his wife Erica and new baby Bryce. Erica is gonna have her hands full with these two boys!
Here’s my cousin Shannon. I told her she was gonna make my blog . . . she didn’t believe me. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
My sister showing off her weird finger that after surgery has developed a grater or something at the joint!
Here’s my Step-sister, Bev, her husband Jim, and my niece Kim. Kim was able to get away from all her little guys since they were all playing ball. Good break for her!
This one is rare . . . . the Cheever brothers. Right to left, Lyle the youngest brother, then Mallory, SIL Maureen who is married to middle brother Laine. Yes, yes we know. Lance (Mr. Stodgy), Lyle and Laine. There was also dogs Luscious and Linus!
Kate . . . . don’t know what was going on here!
Our old neighbor Suzanne with Mr. Stodgy. Suzanne’s kids and ours grew up together. The same ages and same schools.
Here’s Mallory with Marianne. Marianne is Suzanne’s. She has a twin sister Michelle. These three girls were like sisters. We called them the M&Ms. Suzanne’s dad treated my girls like they were his own grandkids. We still call him Grandpa Bill. Sadly I didn’t catch him on film.
Will’s aunts. Gotta love these ladies . . . what a hoot!
Of course, it wouldn’t be a family gathering without a vicious game of corn hole. This is Will’s mother, Rhoda, and his sister Stephanie.
Oh and the dog . . . that’s Marley. He belongs to Steph!
I didn’t get pictures of everyone darn it all. But hey, there will always be other opportunities.
So there’s our day yesterday . . . we had a great time!! I hope you had a great day too!
