Wordful Wednesday: Ham Hocks

Untitled
The last two and a half weeks have been busy.
While her British hubs went off to "bring home the bacon" for ten days,
Cool sister came home with her two under two. (I am secretly changing her name to Crazy sister)

Then the rest of the clan arrived for the May long weekend.

Untitled
Busy hanging out at Grandma and Grandpas with all of the cousins aged 6 months to 16 years.

Untitled
Busy playing hide and seek.

Untitled
We managed to keep busy by fitting in a birthday celebration of 93 years.

Untitled
Busy spending time with my Cool sis and Nana.

Untitled
Busy making Hawaiian pancakes for the crew.

Untitled
Busy grabbing handfuls of squishy ham hocks.

Untitled
Busy looking into the future.

Untitled
Busy jumping from activity to activity.

Untitled
Busy tasting the several flavours Menchies had to offer.
Of course, more than one visit was necessary to accomplish this.

Untitled
Busy changing my ISO to a higher setting.

Untitled
Still busy grabbing ham hocks.  I couldn't help myself.

Untitled
Busy finding time for photos of Organized Martha-esque Sister's family.

Untitled
Busy watching cousins bond.

Did I mention it was busy?

The ham hocks were so worth it though.

  2. I love it! Family visits/reunions/get togethers are the best! And chubboes (as I call them) are the best.
