The Maine Event
My sister (in law) Nancy throws a Rose Family Reunion at her home in Maine every year, and WOW what a shindig. We're talking pony rides, tractor rides (much more violent/exhilarating than I would have expected!), pet fish shopping (we came home with a long-nosed eel, Cyrano, and a spotted catfish, Bengal), cake decorating, swimming, deep sea diving, cheese tasting, chocolate lolly painting (I made the tie-dye one for Matt), horse surgery viewing (orthopedic, the mare did fine), horror movies, a free-weight workout, Millionaire Shortbread, and of course the sweetest, most succulent lobster ever. We had about a zillion adults and kids running amuck and it was utterly fantastic.
