Amazing Memorial Day weekend with the family. Camille & I celebrated our 64th year & Boone Thompson has made it to 30! It has been a weekend fit for queens & the birthday girls have lived it up.
Shortly after pulling in on Friday afternoon, Dean took us over to Lea Island for the 2016 inaugural boat trip! Heavenly day & wonderful ride on the water. Lathan, Kaitlyn & Finley joined us for takeout pizza! Yea! A weekend without kitchen responsibilities was high on our list of priorities & our guys started it right away. It is fantastic to be with our family again. Lots of porch time, festive drinks & chatting it up.
Saturday defied the bad weather prediction & we piled into the boat again. Our captain on this trip was the birthday boy himself. Kaitlyn joined us for a day among the hoards trying to find a spot of sand. We succeeded, even if we had to move our chairs every 20 mins due to rising tides. Cool gentle breezes, a warm sun & generally laziness made for a perfect day. Holton’s arrival ramped the party mood up another notch! Our guys cooked dinner again! Yahoo! Dave McNaught was the general manager of the weekend, keeping the men on task with shopping & cooking. Birthday Princess Day 2 was marvelous.
Emma & Charlotte joined us on Sunday, adding to our joy. She & I had a very pleasant visit with our dear Mom & we got some funny pictures. She still maintains her feisty personality! The afternoon on the porch lazed away into another party evening. The Thompson home is perfect for festivities & we always enjoy their hospitality. Edward & Dean pulled off another great meal & cleanup. Camille & I are extremely grateful for our princess birthday weekend. We’ll have to cook something nice for them tonight! Or maybe we’ll go out, hmmm…..
We missed James & Glenda but they were also living it up at the beach (in Costa Rica) celebrating their engagement anniversary!
