A Family Affair

Did y'all have a nice 4th of July holiday? I took 4 days off, now that's fun all in itself! LOL With my dad here from Tennessee, my sister here from North Carolina, we had a big family gathering at my niece's boyfriend's house. He graciously hosted due to the lack of room at my small house.

We grilled shrimp, corn, scallops, hamburger and ribs. Side dishes included chilled shrimp, deviled eggs, potato salad, crab dip and beans. I made a dump cake for dessert and my little granddaughter helped mommy make red, white and blue cupcakes.

My niece made a pitcher of sangria? Not sure of the spelling. At first I thought it was jello that hadn't set because it was red and had fruit floating in it:) I tried it, didn't like it, so stuck with sweet ice tea. The guys did the guy thing and drank beer.

I thought you might like to see a few pictures taken that day.
