Well I am home from my fabulous cousins weekend.
Since I bought my Grandparents house, the 5 girl cousins get together twice a year and oh what a grand time we have! One cousin is a professional chef and she does the cooking for us.
The weather on Friday was warm and humid, but great for enjoying the porch
Here we all are!
The peonies in Grandmother's yard are blooming
Donna lighting the grill for steaks
Oh yes! and a little champagne to celebrate being together!
For desert....Grandmother's chocolate honey cake!
The next morning we got up early, because it was spring clean up day. We borrowed the twins truck and we had to load the old carpet that has been in the garage since I bought the house.
Aren't they cute! Mary got us all matching gloves!
The truck is loaded along with my cousins SUV!
The man working the dumpsters said he had never seen 5 women have so much fun at a dump!
Then we were on to take Frank and Felicity around town
All our family in town got flamingoed!
Lunch out at a local cafe/chocolate shop
Some shopping at the antique mall
Checking out Tete's booth....looking good girl!
We were having trouble with a raccoon visiting us in the porch attic. I guess he wanted to join the party, so I had to call " Trapper John" in.
So when we got back................Oh no!!
Someones poor dachshund found our raccoon cage....I felt so bad. We got him out and he ran away like lighting.
Cousin Fred is here! Time for dinner!
The twins are in the house!
Baked tarragon chicken, Grandmother's home made dumplings, vidalia carrots and key lime pie!
The 5 cousins the CCC's!!!!
Did I mention we had some wine??
Then it was time for bed
Good Morning...we had decided to have everyone back for brunch
I was doing the omelet station
More cousins joined us, good thing they ran into the twins at church so they knew to come!
Me showing cousin Max and Joy how their house was flamingo ed!
Buying 1515 has been such a blessing. We saw each other at weddings and funerals, but now we get to know each other and share more moments.
I am sure our parents and Grandparents are smiling today.
But we will be together again in October!
