Fripp Family Vacation

It got very quiet yesterday a little after 8AM when Brad’s and Maz’s cars left . Ronnie was real sad, maybe a little extra so because Maren and Thea had left the day before and poor old Brady was sick. And Kathy and family had left two days before. It was too short. We had the house cleaned up, the car packed and were outa there by 9. This morning there were two fishing boats in the driveway in front and a trailer with ski doos in back. Another week, another group.

The week was a blur but I remember who did the cooking each day and what they cooked because dinner time was always the highlight.

Ronnie did her Mexican Fiesta chicken crock pot dish on Sunday but she did it in the oven in a roasting pan because the crock pot wasn’t big enough. We all loved it and we kept eating it for the next two or three days.

We grilled hamburgers and hot dogs on Monday night. I had cheeseburgers for lunch for two days afterward. The grills were poorly vented and I had to start over with new charcoal partway into it. It took forever but surprisingly they were really good.

The kids went to the beach and or pool every day and Tuesday was no exception.

I think It was Tuesday that Ken and Maz did a chicken wrap dish. They spent all day on it, including a trip to the supermarket in Beaufort, boning the chicken then finally cooking it. These two guys did a great job.

The rest of the gang played Scattergories while the cooking was underway.

Maren, Michael and Thea joined the party on Wednesday and before dinner Hannah, Kayla and Jillie put on a dance review on the screened porch. It was highly rehearsed and a real crowd pleaser. Brad did his Shrimp Creole that night. It was outstanding.

Thursday, the Anderson girls did Mexican night. Yummmm!

Thursday and Friday there was football and hoola hoops on the beach

Friday, we made 8 pizzas including plain cheese, pepperoni, veggie, and tomato, olive oil and feta. After dinner the hoola hoop competition got under way. My personal favorite was Brandon because he could keep it going in the most bizarre positions, although Alex is a natural. He makes it look easy.

Saturday we went back to an old kids favorite, shrimp pie and crab cakes

    Looks like a good time was had by all!!! Love the pictures especially of the grandkids and the “old” cars. (Jim, are you old enough to have cars like that????)

    Food sounds great…next year a project for everyone…start a cookbook. I think friends and family would love it. I’ve thought Ronnie should have started one YEARS ago.

    Keep up the blog, it’s good to see how the “other half” lives.

    Love to all,
