We put together a yummy breakfast (with the help of Jacquelyn, Seth, and Thomas!) of Dutch Babies (German Pancakes), Fresh Fruit (with freshly whipped cream!), Homemade Hashbrowns (first attempt at those), Zucchini Bread, Bacon, and Juice. And it was delicious!
(We did two variations on the dutch baby - one with twelve eggs and one with six eggs - both from the same recipe. However, the one with twelve eggs - while yummy - looked nothing like the typical peaked edges of normal dutch babies. Brandon compared it to Lembas Bread (from the Lord of the Rings) - "one small bite is enough to fill the stomach of a grown man.")
Jacquelyn and Seth arrived first with Brynley, then Kari, Fred, and Paisley, and finally Thomas, Casey, and Jacob. I hadn't seen Kari in years and had never met her husband Fred or her little girl. It was fun to finally meet them all!
We hung out and chatted for a few hours - catching up on our various adventures, took a few photos and then went our separate ways! It was a great couple of hours and it made me want to spend more time with all of them. It is so easy for us to do our thing (work, exercise, food) and then nothing else! So easy for us to be sort of anti-social. But we enjoy spending time with others and always remark on that after the fact. :)
So fun for our families to all get to meet!
