Food, Drink and Play on Labor Day Weekend

When we have a get together, it normally happens in the afternoon so that Dominic can finish up feeding the calves their dinner.  Yesterday was no different.  We had a small get together at our house with some friends and family late in the afternoon. 

Here are some of the highlights:

Rojo's Pico De Gallo.

Dogs and hamburgers.

Tortilla chips, Kettle chips, guacamole, french onion dip.

Macaroni salad from Mom and my Greek Inspired Orzo Salad.


Gotta have watermelon.

Wine.  BV Coastal and Corda were the red choices for the afternoon.

And Kunde Chardonnay for the white.

Kids eat first.

So the adults can enjoy a peaceful meal.

While the kids wear themselves out in the Jumpy House.

Okay, I can't keep anything from you, I also enjoyed the Jumpy when no one was looking {the day before}.  Although, I forgot Bryce likes to photograph all kinds of things as his mama.

Time to re-energize.

In time to swing a bat.

At a pink pony pinata.

And scramble for candy.

Throw out the remaining candy that didn't fit into the pink pony pinata {because I don't want it at my house}.

At the end of the day, everyone was Dog Tired.

Happy Sunday!
Pin It

I love that cow bowl that your salsa was in. Kunde wine is great. They are also Hereford breeders.

The steaks in the last post and the burgers here just look so good. It is hard to find good beef in Florida. I grew up on grass feed beef in Ohio and miss it very much. Makes me hungry just seeing the grill.
