On Canada Day weekend we celebrated not only our nations birthday but also family.
For years. ..Princeton, British Columbia has meant the half way point and most often an ice cream break on our way to the Okanogan.
Princeton also means . .
a beautiful spot in a dry place where we reconnected with family.
Right next to the Kettle Valley Railway ..
some of us took advantage of the beautiful 5 kilometer walk into town.
The menfolk who share our last name. . .
know how to cook.
Thirty-one pounds of prime rib roasting over the open fire and three large roasting chickens was the anchor of a delicious family BBQ on Saturday evening.
There is nothing like a campfire to bring a wonderful day to an end. We fried up doughnuts later in the evening and then shared them around the fire.
If you want a fabulous family gathering dessert idea. . .
look up Charlotte's doughnuts in the book.
Dozens of eggs were scrambled up in the morning. . .
by the menfolk. . .
and eaten by the whole crowd.
What a great time we had.
Thanks to our wonderful hosts Cousins. . Gary and Heather. . . and their really nice adult kids, Geoff and Lauren.
and Uncle Elmo and Autnie Mo for helping them with the planning.
The work they put into this weekend was not overlooked. I know they must have been tired at the end of the weekend . ..and we appreciated it so much.
Don't you just love it when the decision to go turns out to be fantastic?
all for now. .
