We have been looking forward to the boat ride/retirement party for months now...THESE ARE MY PEOPLE...
|My sister Deena, coming aboard, wanted to say hello to Uncle Melvin...|
|I guarantee you he is giving me a hard time about something....|
|My niece Amy, sister Deena, sister-in-law Jeanne, daughter-in-law Emily and Brenda -- married to Deena's son Toby...|
|Can you see who stepped out so I COULD BE in the picture??|
|Uncle Melvin and Kathy. He is always telling us that he wouldn't be here if it weren't for her. She is a blessing to our entire family...|
|The boat ride was the very first time Emily left Warren with an actual babysitter...She looks pretty relaxed, eh??|
|This is the crowd just waiting to board...|
|Nicole's husband, Bill -- and Elliott|
|John was saving us a table...which I never got a chance to sit at...|
|Ronda and Dean enjoying their chicken dinner. DELISH!!|
|Another shoe shot -- my boring sandals and Kelcy's kick-ass peacock embroidered BOOTS.|
THANKS, Uncle Melvin and Kathy for a wonderful once-in-a-lifetime party. It will definitely go down in the record books. Our kids will always remember it -- and our family will be talking about it for years to come!!
YOU ARE THE BOMB!!!
