Weekend fun

Mr. Aitch and I went to visit some of our relatives this weekend.  We stayed with his brother and sister-in-law and partied with them Friday evening.

Left to right: Me, B-I-L, S-I-L, and Mr. Aitch.


We started off with some fantastic potato skins that had cheese and bacon under Ranch dressing.  They were so good!  I didn’t get pictures of the stuffed portabella mushrooms and Nachos because, well, we were in the Cock-Eyed Bar (in B-I-L’s basement) and enjoying the adult beverages.  In other words, I forgot.


Saturday I met up with two of my cousins, two aunts, and my sister.  We attended a luncheon honoring Grove City College Scholarship donors and recipients.

Clockwise from the bottom:  My” iPad cover” Aunt (seated), Holly from Denver, Joan from Houston, my sister, Aunt from Denver, and me.


The scholarship recipient was a wonderful young man who has a good head on his shoulders and seems very grounded.


The last time I saw my Houston cousin was when our daughter got married in 2007. I went on a business trip in 2008 and saw my Denver aunt and cousin.  Our families want to close that gap and visit more often!

How do you handle long-distance family reunions?
