Ahhhhhh…. can you hear my relaxing sigh! That’s because we just finished yet another successful Beach Bonfire. Have I told you lately how much I love my job?!?! Honestly.. just check out this sunset picture taken by DEN Member Kathy Martin’s husband. If you click on the photo and look really closely on the right hand side, you can see the Queen Mary!
I remember when I was going through the interview phase and someone asked, "How will you adapt to not being in an enviroment with your co-workers on a daily basis?" It’s one of those questions that throws you for a loop. What would life be like not in an "office family"? Well over a year later, I would have to say meet my new family… bigger and better than ever! Take a look at our family photo!
Over 20 DEN members and their families joined together for some fun in the sun as we toasted summer goodbye. We had such a blast! Ray, Bobby, and Laurian grilled with perfection. Everyone brought such great snacks! Award winning recipes for the evening… hmmm Bobbi’s home grown tomatoes… Brett’s wife’s guacamole and blueberry crumble cake… Karen’s daughter’s cookies…. But most importantly was the chatting and the exchanging of ideas and contact information. Take a look at these great pictures! And yes to all our friends back east… they are wearing their coats… after all it dipped to about 65 degrees.
P.S. For all those who missed the unvieling of the secret s’more recipe… well… you’ll just have to wait until next year! Ha! Ha! Well… okay… we used Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup (that’s for my boss in Hershey!) But the real secret is cutting the marshmellow in 1/2 first and lodging the chocolate inside (special thanks to my husband for figuring that one out!) Our DEN newlyweds the "Harvey’s" even fed eachother 😉 How sweet! While Carol Anne taught us… it really is best if you remove the brown paper wrapper prior to roasting your Reese S’more.
