Labor Day Splitty Style

Yes yes, I know, Labor day has long since passed, but alas we have been busy as usual! (We just went to KC last week and I will post the pictures from that trip soon!) Paul and Sally, Tony and Lisa, and all the Splitty grandchildren (Minus Carter!! Where art thou oh Carter!!??) came on down to the homestead for a day of fun family fellowship. So, let the brat grilling, beer drinking, face stuffing, clothes swapping, and park playing commence!

Grill Magnet

Looks Yummy! My mouth is watering again!

Like Father Like Son (The real question is, which one IS better? The green onion Brat or Ted's??)

Maddingly's all about the desserts....

Whilst the other Splitty grandchildren seem to REALLY like Watermelon!

Off to the Park! (Yes, we DID call each other and coordinate all the green dresses!)

Clothes for Alexandra...That oughta do it!

The bat is as big as HE is!

Juice Break!!

Addison REALLY gets a kick out of a juice box!

When all was said and done, the kids were all tuckered out and full of fun times spent with each other. We adults managed to have a bit of fun as well, thanks so much for coming over everybody!!

P.S. Of course, the most IMPORTANT part of the day was drawing names for Christmas. But unfortunately I didn't get pictures of that. And the FUNNIEST part of the day was when everyone was in the kitchen watching Sally cut paper into squares and writing names on them for us to draw and Tony says, "Hey, we should draw names for Christmas since we're all here!" Tony, that IS a novel idea. Love you Tony!!

Edited To Add: The funniest moment AFTER everyone left was when Kelly and I had leftovers that night for supper and realized that the burgers were WAY too peppery. I can't believe Lisa and Sally managed to eat one without saying something about it, that was very polite of you. MY BAD!!

Looks like everyone is doing well. It's good to see everyone getting together.
I must mention again- that is one fine grill!

How funny!!! One time Cindy made burgers with garlic and Ryan choked one down...I refused. My sister cannot taste garlic!!

Looks like you had a great time!
