We had this many kebabs…times 2! And there were just 3 leftover!!!
A view from above of the “little people” table. They more or less “grazed” all evening…and I did see some nibbling from the buffet!
Andrea‘s Buffalo Chicken Dip, Becky‘s Hummus and Garden Veggie Salad, Amy‘s Fruit Salad, Jolyn‘s baked beans, my potato salad, brownies and a strawberry pie (made from this recipe)…plus a mountain of kebabs!
Oh. And here’s me.
Out from behind the camera!
My friend Jolyn was taking photos and I couldn’t help but make a few funny faces!!!
The bump is getting “wider”…I’m carrying “wide” again…wonder if it’ll be another boy! I’ve lost my hips…but haven’t popped too far out yet. Just the same way that I carried the boys! We’ll know in a few short days!
We are enjoying the day at our town’s parade and festival…followed by an evening of grilling on the patio with our family!
Happy 4th of July Weekend to you all!
