We all made it to brunch at 9:30 on Sunday morning and it was a feast!
There was homemade pumpkin bread and our Nana’s famous coffee cake.
The best brownies I have ever tasted – recipe to come and they are not healthy! 🙂
Cookies – remember when we made these a few days before!
Fruit basket from Edible Arrangements
Fresh Veggie Tray
Stratas and Spinach/Sausage Balls plus a southern favorite – Shrimp Grits (they are in the foil in the back)
Shrimp Salad Sandwiches
Chicken Salad Sandwiches
The Beverage Bar
While we ate there was lots of hanging out at the pool.
Plus some photo shooting of the fam!
EB (her name is really is Elizabeth) 🙂 and Joe
My parents and my grandma
The Kiracofe Clan
Family of the Bride!
Some of the fam (the over 40 crowd) 🙂
Our growing family
After the guests left and the photo shoot was over there was some extreme pool sports that took place. The boys started with b-ball and then moved to 500 and then volleyball. They were pretty intense and many of them ended up with huge brush burns and bruises.
The girls watched from afar!
And Anna hung out in the shade with Gram!
When the pool sports were done, they took a break with some corn hole.
Then it was back to the pool!
Addie kept herself busy and smiling with all of the fun toys.
And we ended the night in the hot tub! The weekend was perfect! We had such a great time at everything!
The next morning (which was Monday) we got up and went to my cousin’s daughter Reagan’s baptism in a park on the water in Winter Park! My camera had died though so there are no pictures….
Coming up.. recipes for Watergate Salad and Snickers Brownies. Attempts will be made to lighten these up in the near future!
This weekend: This weekend is another crazy busy weekend. Each year we will fill our Memorial Day weekend with parties and traditions at my parents house in Cleveland. The plan:
Friday night: Party/Couples shower for Kara and Adam at my parents house. Lots of pictures and recipes to come!
Saturday: Head to Chautauqua for Dock Day! Putting in the dock and cooking out at the lake.
Saturday night: Come back to Chagrin
Sunday: Run the Annual Blossum Time 5 mile Run (since I am not released for running until Tuesday, this will be more of a run/walk for Anna and I)
Sunday Afternoon – parade and rib sauce preparation
Sunday Evening: Rib Cook-Off ( a few families get together and do this every year)
