Skipper Family Hamburger and Hot Dog Night

September 29, 2007

Since Ann and I plan to be gone for several weeks, I wanted to have all the family together for an evening, so I invited them over for grilled hamburgers and hot dogs. All but Jeff were there. In spite of the afternoon rain, it was comfortable enough to eat out on the enclosed porch that I tiled earlier in the year. It was a little crowded with a total of 13 there, but of course there was the option of going into the house for a break from the humidity. I think ceiling fans will help, so I'll try to install a couple by the end of the year.

The overcast sky made it darker and the small flash on my little 'shirt-pocket' digital just didn't do a very good job of lighting the porch.

We have a movie of Jimy making an expression like that when he was about one year old.
What was Laura thinking?

The flash didn't help much here and I had to do some enhancing, but I think it makes a great photo with all those smiling faces. :)
