Guinea Pigs' weekend

This last weekend Jeff and Lisa and 2 kids, and John and Wendy and 2 kids were our guinea pigs for meals for our upcoming family reunion.  Brian and I fixed breakfast each day, then we all put out lunch fixings on the table and each made a sack lunch to their own liking, and we took turns providing dinner for the crowd.  It went pretty well, I think.  The table isn't big enough to accomodate all the fixings each family had for lunch, so that idea may not work after all, when we have 6+ families involved.  We are rethinking that one for the reunion.  However, breakfasts and dinners worked out very well. 

Activities we enjoyed were canoeing, moose hunting (with our cameras!), trips into Yellowstone, and of course, the 4th of July BSA fund raiser garage sale, where we came away with nothing, not even the steal of a queen sized bed because the bid closed as we got there!  Darn!

On Saturday night, Scott and Chris invited us to their place for dinner around the campfire.  Fireworks on the lake in canoes was a rare and fun event.  The reflections on the water were fabulous.  We went to bed quite late but happy that night.

What if you turned the table just for lunch prep time to make an "L" shape buffet with the counter as the other half? Just an idea.

Yea, not a bad idea. Help me remember that next week.
