A Company Day

Tuesday was a pretty busy day for us. Peter had a golf date with a couple of guys from church and their wives and kids came over to play with his wife and kids. I spent the morning cleaning and before everyone came, we went out to run a few errands and buy a new picnic table for outside. They said they could deliver that day, but we didn't expect the table there before we got home (it was)!! We got home around one and the two families arrived around 1:30 so the guys could make their 2:30 tee time.

It was a great day spent almost entirely outside. The kids (13 of them) played out on the beach and then rode all the bikes, scooters, and skateboards we own around our street. The women enjoyed the sun, beach, and swing and talked. Once the men finally got home, we used our grill for the 1st time in CT and made a yummy dinner. Did I mention they didn't get home till around 8? After years of golf, you think I would have realized that the game wouldn't be over till late BEFORE they left. But no such luck. We couldn't start without them because Peter was bringing home the propane!!

It was a lot of fun. I enjoyed having company over, especially ones who can handle a little chaos (the only kind that can be truly comfortable at our house). I know my two friends took pictures, some really cool looking, but I was too lazy to go in and get my camera. So this is my one snapshot for the day, isn't that a neat design for a picnic table?


  1. that is a beautiful table. I'm sure it is even more gorgeous with your beautiful ocean view. Sounds like you had fun!

  2. Cool table! Sounds like a fun summer day. Did you have to put that table together, or did they deliver it assembled?

  3. So cool! Where'd you get it?

  4. Sounds like fun. I need to have people over. Real people....not just family :P LOVE the table.
