Week End Musings

Saturday we hosted a fundraiser in our back yard for Jay and Annette Stoltzfus, who are in the process of adopting a child. All I needed to do was clean the flower beds and yard...the fun stuff! The day was HOT! Luckily, our neighbours have a swimming pool and some dips were taken to cool off.

Jay and Annette
The planners...L-R DIL Bev, daughter Julia, Annette
The griller, son Loren.
The cooks.
Setting up.
One waitress among many, my neice Lynda.
Yummy dessert!
Everything set to go!
From one side of the garden...
...to the other.
Jay and Annette hosted the guests, giving everyone 'thank you' gifts.
It was a fun, interesting and exhausting event. Thunderstorms were all around us later in the evening but we only had a few drops. Altogether, a lovely evening!

Thanks to Bev and Lynda for mopping the kitchen and dinning room floors - on their knees!
