Celebrating Family & Cousins

July19

I have shared with you previously, that we are a large extended family.  My children are 3 of 14 first cousins.  The entire 14  live in Winnipeg (at the moment) and the gang relishes excuses to get together.  The perfect reason was provided last month when one of the cousins returned from an extended stay in Australia with her new beau.  Instead of his having to meet everyone on an individual basis, Sister #2 hosted a backyard BBQ so that he could be introduced to everyone, en mass.

Daughter #1 with the wife of Nephew Number#2 (tee hee).

Our son J1 with Nephew #2.

Daughter #2 with the couple of the evening.

Since it was cousins only, Sister #3 and I had to create the excuse of helping with the dinner in order to sneak a peak at the new fella!

We were actually put to very good use-Sister #3 sauteing the Pow (or was it Bam?) Shrimp and I putting together the salad, garlic bread and baked potatoes.

Sister #2 planned a simple meal with guaranteed appeal: “My Man’s Ribs” (recipe posted on this site)

and extended fixings for over sized baked potatoes a.k.a. a Baked Potato Bar (a take off on a salad bar).

The children of Sister #2 and Brother #3.

D borrowed a commercial blender from his office and made rum fruit slushies to get the party going.  A good time was had by all, as the saying goes…

I mistakenly missed a photo op of Nephew #4 and Nephew #5 and his girlfriend arrived after I had put the camera away.  Are they not a good looking bunch?  My angels, all of them.

Love-that is all.
