It's All In The Family...

Funny thing....when I went out to do morning chores I had my camera with and took several pictures with no card in it.  Oh well.

This afternoon the house filled up with family.  My brother and his wife, their daughter, son-in-law and their three children drove up from Lakewood.  Gannon immediately took a shine to Daniela.
 Ariana and Berke explored the gardens.

 Before I knew it there was a serious bocce game taking place out on the lawn.
Berke was a quick study.
 Gary and Katie were enjoying their coffee and the show.

 What a team!
 The dining room table was set for 13.
 Spaghetti and meatballs was on the menu....figured the kids would like that.

 It's very rare that we get together like this...what a pleasure.

 Gary, my brother Gary, Katie and Ariana decided to take a ride down to the Welcome Center.
 Bob M. was on duty.

 When they got home it was chore time and it took all I had to get up and go out to the barn.

 I had lots of company.

 While I finished up, the girls went headed to the loft.

 Gary and Vickie left at 8:30.  The rest of us vegged or played games.
 Tomorrow....Berke, Gannon and Harvey are going to love their visit to The Museum of Play in Rochester.

Night all.


  1. Oh my, it sounds like Christmas in July, Lori! What a treat to have all the beloved family around you! Your table setting was like the proverbial "Last Supper" with 13 seated! If you have a chance, please do pop over to my post on TUESDAY. I have something posted there which I'd love you to see. Blessings. Jo

  2. Not sure about your camera but mine takes pictures in itself without a card - you have to use the cord to hook it up to the computer to get them off. It's older, maybe they don't do that any more?

  3. So your card was in your computer wasn't it? I do that:) Fun times on the farm for you all I love seeing that. Hug B

  4. It all looks like great fun. It's wonderful to have family visit..

  5. What a a fun day! It's so nice when everyone can get together.
