To *NOT* take photos for once in my life.
We had a gathering here at my house last night to hail summer coming, but also to celebrate the fact that my good friend Teresa (Trees in OK) was in town visiting her parents.
I figured everyone has had enough of my camera in their face lately, so I left it tucked away for as long as I could. But, seriously. I had not met Teresa’s 9 month old Jocelyn yet and there she was, looking so adorable… I finally caved and got my equipment.
Thank God I did.
Who are those other gorgeous girls, you may ask? Why, Julie (Mothergoosemouse) also made an appearance at the soirée! (And it just so happens she is friends with Teresa as well! The circle of life!) Obviously her girls loved Teresa’s baby too.
Oh, and one final note. Several people commented on the delish sangria that Bryan mixed up. I actually found the recipe on the internet. Enjoy:
* 1 Bottle of red wine (we used a step up from Gallo, but still a cheap wine)
* 2 Lemons cut into wedges
* 2 Limes cut into wedges
* 2 Tbsp cane sugar
* 3 Splashes of orange juice
* 2 Shots of gin
* 1 Small can of diced pineapples (with juice)
* 4 Cups ginger ale
* Serve over ice
Thanks to all who came and helped us start the summer right!
