The Pelletiers

The Pelletier family are close friends of ours. The youngest son, JP, and my husband Jonathan have been best friends since college and we were invited to his parents' house recently for a cookout. This is the first time in a couple years the whole family has been in one spot at one time, so we tried for a family photo. With 5 kids and 6 grandkids however, that turned out to be a bit of a spectator sport for me. It was quite entertaining, until we finally got the shot above with everyone in it....or so we thought....as we were taking this picture, another child emerged from the garage, blissfully unaware (or blissfully aware) that he was missing the photo.




So we tried again....



This is the second-oldest son Jimmy. He was on leave from his second tour of duty in Iraq.




Look at those kids! What a great family. Six kids and one on the way.









And of course, one of our chefs, Pat, cooking up some really good ribs....
