Another delayed celebration, postponed at our house until June, was a "Mother's Day" visit from my Godson, Casey and Sarah.
I was showered with the perfect "Fairy Godmother" card, and a coffee mug...JUST MY SIZE!
The most exciting news, however, is that Casey and Sarah are engaged! We met Sarah for the first time last year. I immediately knew, and hoped she would end up being my "Goddaughter-in-law"! What a happy couple. It was 118 that weekend, and we stayed in the pool for hours on both Saturday and Sunday.
Casey has been trying to coax his dog, Nero, to swim for two summers. NOT interested. We all tried to entice him into the pool, but he wouldn't. He DID learn that standing on the large top step, was cooler than the burning cement!
Soon, Ego went for a swim. That seemed to be what it took! Ego taught his new buddy to relax in the water and swim joyously too! Good boy, Nero!
Friday and Sunday we barbequed dinner: lamb chops, fennel-orange salad, and corn on the cob. Sunday was BBQ chicken, zucchini and a simple risotto. Casey and Sarah snacked on an Ooey Gooey toffee cake all weekend. Saturday night, we went out to dinner to celebrate their engagement.
Wedding bells will be ringing next July! Oh boy! I love weddings, and showers!
