Egg-Saws-Ted (aka. Exhausted!)

Today was the Annual Lee Family Reunion....which is held each year at our Caesar property (The Center of the Lee Family Land). This Reunion is Brandy's Grandma Betty's Brothers and Sisters and all of their families. A good time was had by all....but I and the rest of the McCoy Tribe are slap worn out. I now know how Mom and Dad McCoy feel after throwing their big get togethers that we used to have. Today, we started at 7 AM with a super fast Breakfast of time to cook....then headed to Caesar to start getting ready. After a trip all over town to locate propane for the grill (which we ended up not even needing after all that!), I finally made it to the property around 10 AM!!!!! So that meant flight of the bumblebee to the extreme. By the time I got there, Brandy had already gotten all of the lawn equipment relocated from under the shed, which was a HUGE help. So that meant getting the tables and chairs out of storage, setting them up and then starting to cook all within an hour! It actually happened!!!

Grandma Betty, the coordinator of the reunion decided that we would make this year's reunion easier on everyone by just doing Grilled meats, and everyone would bring a side we grilled Hamburgers, Hotdogs, Chicken, and a Brisket.
There is always too much food at our reunions and it is all soooooo good. I stuffed myself as usual! It was good seeing everyone again!

Andy had a great time playing with his cousins (Blake was Andy's best friend by the end of the day).

Aunt Melanie brought us a gift for M.E., a box stuffed with about 10 pair of cute girlie baby shoes! They are precious! Thanks so much Melanie!

The thing I love most about this family reunion is how everyone sits around and talks. Listening to Brandy's family tell some of their stories is better than going to Improv! Between Kenny and Denson, they had the whole group laughing to no end! A good time was had by all, and once we finished the clean up, Brandy, Andy, Mimi, and I came home to Veg for a few hours before calling it a day. Night Everyone!
