Family and friends began arriving by 3:00. And they brought lots to eat and drink. More salads, dips, pigs in blankets, deviled eggs, beef brisket, roast chickens, sangria and beer.
The dessert table was loaded with Kate's blackberry cobbler, my gluten free black berry peach cobbler, Mary's key lime pie and Caroline's flourless chocolate torte.
Dad arrived with Catie and then we had four generations - from four months to 96 1/2 years - all together to share a sunny afternoon. This year, we even remembered to take a family photo, thanks to James Hughes behind the lens.
Since Kelan was just the right weight for his age group and team, he was more than thrilled to celebrate with black berry cobbler and far too much whipped cream. He may have used the whole can?
