Sons & daughters, grandchildren, cousins, and in-laws -- they're all here this week. So, yesterday, after a quick afternoon dip in the ocean, we iced down some drinks, poured charcoal on the grill, made deviled eggs, cut up veggies, and by 6 o'clock we were ready for them all.
We ate, drank, caught up on each other's lives, and made watermelon rind teeth (sadly, it was a seedless watermelon so there was no seed-spitting contest). We did have a "Watermelon Slices Chunking Contest" though, and sang/played "Farmer in the Dell" (with a few local variations).
It was old-fashioned and fun.
