My Parents/ Trash Can dinner anyone?

My parents came up to visit us the first week of August. We had a great time even though my poor mom had a bad cold and my Dad had a pinched nerve in his shoulder.

The Griffitts clan invited us to a Trash Can dinner. I had never heard of this actually made me a little sick to my stomach to think about it...but we went! This is what we saw when we walked up to the house.

Mom, me & Tamar (and baby Zach of course)

My Dad his SIL's.

We are a classy bunch up here in Northern ID and only treat our guests to the best of dining.

The kids all had a great time. There was roughly about 30 to 35 people there.

The house was on Fernan Lake. It was a beautiful set up. There were games set up and plenty of seating for everyone.

Here is the final product. Potatoes, carrots, cabbage, sausage & onions. Normally, they dump the food on a tarp on the ground, but there was a dog around, so they had to dump it high.

In other news during their trip, Grandpa taught Kelsi everything there is to know about iphones.

They paddled around Lake CDA.

They found Mudgy.

We went to the lake a couple times.

We all hiked Tubbs hill...until we were too hot and then went and ate some gooeys.

This little girl was in heaven with all the attention she was getting.

Kelsi loved spending time with her "other" grandma and grandpa.

I feel so blessed to have my family come visit me. I love them so much.
