|This years theme: LUAU|
Susie and Dewey own a meadow and their son, Lee and his wife Christine put on a party for us...well with a lot of food and help from friends...but still they orchestrate drinking games (croquet this year), set up corn hole boards (holes were lit this year) and see that there is an outhouse for everyone to use.
Tents appear all over the meadow and a beautiful fire drum remains lit all day. The creek that runs through the property provides a play space for the dogs and their people.
If it is not perfect I don't know what is.
At sometime during our one day there I will have a little time with each of my daughter's friends. We laugh, commiserate and, above all, love our time together.
I am not a Bunko Girl like the rest. I am a grandmother/great-grandmother that just happens to be a part of the lives of these people. It is one of the great loves of my life only surpassed by the love for my family. Life is good!
