Vacation happenings....

Lots of catching up with our East Coast friends...
including measuring to see who is growing and who is not...

Preparing dinners.....letting kids clean up....

Devouring dinners.....(yes, Linds is shanking her sister)
So far we have had fabulous ribs one night and outstanding filet Mignon the other....
made to order breakfast from Coach (including leftover steak...YUM)
On the stove presently is a huge pot of chili cooking...wish I had smell-o-vision for you!

Many bottles of good wine consumed.....
Three wonderful boxers having fun....

Kids running outside...being kids....falling in creeks and mud....
The weather is great...wish you were here....
have I mentioned how much I LOVE the PicNik website, especially the collage options???


  1. ***jealous***

    I think I could probably be there in about three hours. Is there room for one more??

    I'll bring a case of wine:)

  2. You managed to capture 2 of my favorites things in one of puppies (I just want to hug and kiss them to pieces!!!) and Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio! I'm a frequent shopper at Costco of those bottles of bad ass fun. Yummy! What a great wine to ease the heat of chili.

    Happy New Year to you and your family!!!
