|The great room before everybody on Brett's side of the family arrived.|
|My daughter, Camille, with my niece, Taylor.|
|My son, Kyle, looking forward to the feast. He loves food as much as I do.|
|My mom who gave me a love of books. She worries about my wardrobe -- jeans, breeches.... ugh.|
|My brother, Ted. We don't agree on politics or much else but we do both have expensive obsessions: he loves sailing as much as I love riding. I think he's the only one in my family who "gets" that part of me.|
|Yours truly, in the kitchen of course.|
|Another shot of Taylor and Camille. Taylor adores Camille.|
There were also some shots that my mom took of the property Sunday while she was outside reading and napping on the porch.
...and now they are all gone. Camille and Kyle back to school; Ted and his family back to San Diego; my parents back to Baywood Park.
