Bruder Campground

 The Luck of the Irish was with us as we celebrated family this past weekend at our family reunion. The weather was hot and humid but not a drop of rain fell on us. Liz and Fred once again offered their home and wonderful piece of property in the country for us to gather for the weekend. Some of us camped out for the duration and others came for the main gathering on Saturday. It is always so much fun when we gather and the relatives that don't come have no idea what a great time they are missing out on. We celebrated our Irish heritage this year and we had a great time wearing our  Irish green clothes and accessories. As usual there was too much food but we managed to eat most of it during the coarse of the weekend. We also enjoyed a wee bit of Baileys and some Guinness beer. Thanks to Fred for making some of his yummy sausage for us to enjoy as well as fresh tomatoes from the garden. Pat baked an Irish potato cake that was amazing. Everyone brought great food that we enjoyed over the coarse of the weekend. We had the pleasure of a special guest as well. My nephew James brought his 9 week old german sheppard puppy for all of us to enjoy. Breeze is her name and she was so well behaved and such a cutie. We enjoyed two wonderful evenings by the campfire.  The partiers who were up late enough on Saturday evening had the pleasure of watching Fred and Cindy singing Tom Jones song, Delilah. They did an amazing job and their acting deserves an oscar. Sunday was a much more relaxing day and gave us a chance to chat a little more with the cousins and family that were still around. We always look forward to this special weekend and there is only 357 more sleeps until our next
P.S. A group picture will be attached when I get it from Joanne......hint, hint.
