The Par-Tay

It's been a little over 2 weeks since we had our big shindig in Deltaville 
to celebrate saving the house.  
It's taken me two weeks to blog about it because 
it's taken me two weeks to recover from the party things have been busy. 
As with any good party on the water,
steamed crabs and beer were the top menu items.
We had family travel from several states to be there.
Some hadn't been to the house in several years.
Some go every year 
and some live there now.

Even the dogs partied. 
The kids all jumped in the creek 
and stayed there until dark
when I warned them that sharks feed at dusk.
Our cousins who live down the road brought over their paddleboard
that the kids got to try out.
Hard to believe this kid on the paddleboard 
was terrified of the water just a couple of years ago.
And there were some boat rides for the older kids.
All in all, it was a great weekend.
There was much discussion about family history and genealogy
and about returning soon to check out some of our ancestral property. 
Looking forward to spending a lot more time in Deltaville.
