Our SUCCESSFULLY grilled swordfish. I wrote “hopefully” above because the wind was crazy yesterday. We didn’t think the grill would stay lit long enough to get hot and cook the fish. By the time we were ready to grill the wind had died down enough for us to cook! HOORAY!

My plate: potatoes, bread, and swordfish. Everything was delicious, but the swordfish was AMAZING! Perfectly grilled and delectable!

After dinner we cleaned up and played some cards before dessert. The crisp (blueberry, blackberry, raspberry, and strawberry) was in the oven for a long time, but I think that’s what made it so good! It was thick and tart with just a hint of sweet, crunchy topping!

Served with vanilla ice cream, of course!

YUM! Delicious!


We played cards and Trivial Pursuit until I fell asleep Midnight and then my parents headed out. We had a really great time and are so glad they could see our house Smile


One thought on “Mom and Dad come to Virginia!

  1. We had a wonderful evening. The food and fellowship were both fantastic. Zeus approves and really likes the carpeted steps. I loved how everything is arranged. You both have done a wonderful job of coordinating everything.
    One day my house will be all done!
    Love You, MOM
