I set up a drink station, with cups, napkins, and drinks in the coolers. Sweet tea in gallon jugs was added later.
The food table was prepped to receive all the goodies that I knew would arrive. Turns out, two of my guy cousins are awesome cooks. Who knew?
Tables and chairs, set and waiting for food and conversation:
And, my cousin Burt (sorry, but your dad is "Wayne"), getting ready for his big dive. We're all waiting.
And my son is ready for you...
Burt and his wife, Meredith, have a blog. She and I took pictures at the same time, so this shot may actually appear in two places on the web. Here's a link: The Burtons.
