And the less exciting wall 'o' bolts that were literally sorted and passed on to new homes:
It was time for a day off! Our cousin invited the whole family for a pig roast! Papa was known for his pig roasts and thus far, every wedding in the Pozun-Majdic clan has included one. I had forgotten, (as there are no pictures because the process was less that photogenic), apparently even Sharon's mid-winter, sub-zero wedding had one as well. While James and I were fortunate to get to see Dad's cousins a little more often when we lived in Wyoming, the only times they (we) ALL got together much like many families were for funerals. I am so, so, so thankful for Jerry's family for taking on the pig roast so we could break that trend.
As we are still trying to save and hoard James' vacation for long trips to Virginia and a few other things, he didn't join me for the trip. However, he did some switching around and took a "late" Memorial Day weekend to join us for the pig roast. We all hung out:
More hanging out:
After a delicious dinner where there was no time for photos :-) James helped me scout locations for a family photo shoot (which weren't ideal due to some harsh sun, but alas) and he's a very compliant model:
Jennie's kids (the 'ons):
The next day it was back to work. I packed up James with a car load of goodies and projects that are currently waiting for me in the garage:
And the kiddos said their goodbyes for the day:
Uncle Matt and I then headed out to settle a small disagreement at the casino (where I won the disagreement and he won the cash for the night). As we tied up the loose ends at the property I started getting ready for Catherine's 2nd birthday and birthday party, to be blogged soon!
