Spent Sunday afternoon out at my Uncle Donnie and my mom's house (my uncle bought this property from my mom/his sister quite a few years back, but eventually, my mom moved back out there too) celebrating birthdays for Courtney Lee, my grandpa, and my Aunt, Alicia...
My mom and my uncle worked on the place all week getting it ready (my mom even had Donnie build that wine counter in between the trees there in the background), and everything was perfect.
The weather was perfect too.
They also set out lots of old photos and albums for everyone to look through which was particularly fun.
Fresh-brewed ice-tea with lemons and fresh mint too - my favorite.
And a wave. (For some reason, Donnie & Brad started a wave.)
And of course, the blessing that comes from how well my dad, my mom, and my step-mom all get along.
There was (of course) a bit of football.
And some horseshoes too.
And lots of comments about how long Coley's hair is.
And then it was time to celebrate some birthdays.
Lemon meringue pie for my grandpa (my grandma passed away 20 years ago now, but her lemon meringue pie recipe is better than any other lemon meringue recipe you've ever tasted), coconut cake for Courtney Lee, and brownies for my Aunt, Alicia.
Charming (as usual) Brad.
And then the boys played some golf while us girls relaxed.
Happy Birthday Courtney Lee, Grandpa, and Alicia - I sure love you guys.
