Wonder what all of that has to do with one another? By the end of this post, I hope it will make better sense!
This past weekend we had a small respite from all this rain. I’m thankful for it but enough already!! So we headed to the lake for some family time which always involves food. My sister decided we’d do a low country boil. For those of you not familiar with what that is, it’s simply shrimp, sausage, new potatoes and baby corn….all boiled together with some Cajun seasoning and literally thrown out on a table for all to enjoy!
We let the fellas be in charge of cooking….one pot was “spicy” and the other “medium”…I had some of both and they were both divine!
In the past we’ve “served” it on newspaper but Saturday we went all out and used a Dollar Tree plastic tablecloth! Yeah, we’re classy like that! If there was such a thing as a shrimp eating contest, my son-in-law would have taken the prize….here’s his plate after he finally finished….
My daughter teased him that he kept his “hammer” close by in case anyone tried to steal that lobster off his plate! Messy but oh-so-good!
When we finished, we put the leftovers in a pan and gathered up the tablecloth with all the mess and just tossed it! For dessert we had strawberries and ice cream…no one went home hungry!
Before eating late in the evening, the kids enjoyed swimming and riding on Big Bertha. My two granddaughters learned how to ski this weekend too! It was so cute to see them ski by the dock waving at us so proud of themselves.
My youngest grandson had a "large” time all day and finally conked out sitting up!

Here’s the view from the top of the upper deck looking out toward the dock. My son didn’t get out his pontoon boat but there were plenty of other “toys” ….trust me!
Were you wondering how the “director” part fit into this? My sister just got a huge promotion to director at her job! It was a long time coming but no one is more deserving. Congratulations Betsy! (Just remember I’m still the boss of you”)
