As I've mentioned again and again, it has rained non stop here for about two weeks. My Grandma was hoping and hoping the rain would clear so the party she had planned could be out in her spectacular garden. Sunday came and the skies looked dark. My aunt and uncle were in town from London, we were celebrating my cousin's 18th birthday and graduation from high school, and bidding farewell to my other cousin who is spending the entire summer in Mexico volunteering.
The idea for the garden party was a light summer salad party, so everyone was instructed to bring salads. At 5:30 I arrived to a very rainy garden with my salad in hand. Everyone was thrilled to see me because for the first time ever I have a little baby bump. It was awesome seeing Dave and Penny again, saying congrats to Taylor and hearing about Kendra's boyfriend that got swine flu (yes, he got it!). E arrived a little late from a very exciting weekend in Vegas with the guys.
The party was a huge hit, everyone had a great time, the salads were awesome, and even though we weren't in the garden, we still celebrated as if we were.
The garden was beautiful, but much to rainy to enjoy.
Instead we ate inside.
Everyone enjoyed talking in the living room.
Me and my sis Melissa (yes, same dress as tea, it is the only one that still fits!).
This is blurry, but cute. This is Kathleen, Brandon and Chandler.
