A Low-Country Boil

The surprises arrive
 Michael celebrated his 60th birthday back in May and this weekend we had a bash for him.  He knew about the party what he was not aware of was that his sisters and family were coming down from Greensboro NC to surprise him!

The hugs start

and go on...

and on....

Time for a gentlemanly handshake

Looks like a story to me!

Utter chaos in the house and one happy dog!

Time for a cool beverage on the marsh
 We celebrated outside and fortunately the weather which has been very wet cooperated!
My family and friends!

Can we please have some food soon?
 A Low-Country Boil was on the menu.  If you haven't had the pleasure of enjoying this simple treat you should!  It is tasty but better yet it's an affordable way to feed a large group (more so here due to the availability of fresh inexpensive shrimp).  Since I cannot figure out for the life of me how to add anything after the picture below (must be the computer could not be the operator) the recipe will follow on the next posting!

A beautiful day!


  1. The smiles on the face tell the whole story. There's a whole lotta love going on!

  2. What a lovely family...JuJu's right, it's clear everyone had a wonderful time being together. Happy BDay to your hubby! Nice to see you back in the blogosphere...
