Family Picnics and the Art of Eating a Cupcake

Well, we celebrated Labor day as a family at my daughter Carly and Jeramie's home. The food was great, and as always the way we like it- Pot Luck. Jeramie slaved at the hot grill and produced some great burgers, hot dogs and chicken too. For excitement, Seth was under heavy water balloon attack for most of the afternoon....
but he didn't seem to mind as it was very hot out and everyone welcomed getting splashed with cool water... Lola relaxed in the sun and got to eat a very pink cupcake. Last year at this same time, Lola wasn't born yet and was just a large bump in her Mother's lap. It is amazing to me what a difference a year can make.
Hmmm...this looks interesting....

ummm...i think i like that!

there's nothing like really getting into your food!

and she wears it well


Lola is fascinated with gadgets, and i let her play with some of the buttons on my camera. She took these two photos...

Do we have a budding photographer in the making?

Oh man, how could you have forgotten about the bacon-wrapped scallops? Ben and I haven't stopped talking about those since Sunday.
