Today The Horde hosted lunch for one of their favorite aunties, Auntie Karen. Karen lives in Dillwyn, VA, and she came up for the afternoon to have a belated birthday lunch. We ordered live mussels and lobster from Maine as the appetizer and entree, respectively. I also made roasted red potatoes and pulled some green beans from this summer's bounty out of the freezer. Dessert was a rhubarb crisp.
The Horde helped with lunch preparations by inspecting the lobster for quality:
After lunch, I had some help with the clean up:
This is Katie. She is a member of the Samily tree as well. Her daddy is Conner (Ch Woodrose All Things Considered HSAs), who is a Sam son. Karen brought Conner along as well.
We had 7 dogs here today and they are all related through Sam. There were 6 red dogs and 1 brindle. Four of the six are half-siblings. The siblings ranged in age from 11 1/2 (Ginny, from Sam's first litter) to 1 (Georgia, from Sam's most recent litter). We were able to let all the siblings run together in the back yard but it was too tough to get a picture of them all together. I tried for video too but they were never in the frame together and Conner kept jumping on me - I'm his favorite auntie. It was quite a sight to see all those red dogs running amok :)
