A Great Party

This weekend we hosted a fabulous chili supper for 22 or so friends at our cabin. It was a huge success with lots of wine, chili, veggie soup, laughter, and chatter around 3 fires. Unfortunately, I took my camera but forgot to get it out to capture the moment. One of the guests told me it was the best party I had thrown yet. I was surprised but welcomed the complement.


On Friday The Hubby and I packed up the truck with tons of food for the weekend and our bags and I thought were heading for the cabin. I was surprised when he said we would taking a little detour. We turned in Woodward Park and I was very curious what was going to happen. We parked, got out of the truck, but in his hand was a bag of peanuts. The Hubby started walking across the grass, looking back and waving for me to follow. We found a nice spot, sat down on the grass and began to open the peanuts. Not more than two minutes passed when they started coming. One in particular loved to sit on my leg while I would feed him shelled peanuts. Oh, I forgot to mention, we were feeding the squirrels of Woodward Park. I must say these little buggers were very fat, probably fat from the idiots like us feeding them bags of peanuts. It was fun, the weather was nice and it was a nice surprise from The Hubby.

OMGodness!!! That's incredible. A friend of mine had taken a picture of one of the squirrels at woodward park for our photography class. I guess they are so fat this year that they just don't run off!

AWHHH! Talk about "friendly"! That's amazing!!!. . .Reading your Blog brought back a memory that I haven't thought about in several years. I've actually been to Woodward Park to feed the squirrels (they like French Fries, too!) on a beautiful Fall day, once upon a time. I should plan to do it again next Fall...Congrat's on the GREAT party!! Anyone can throw a party, but not everyone can throw a GREAT party! Good goin' Girl!

Very nice surprise! Great picture of that squirrel. I've always been afraid of squirrels. I don't think I could do what you did.

Amazing about the squirrels, ours are pretty tame in the garden but not like that! Sounds like a great party too, but my goodness is your 'cabin' a mansion!! 22 guests and 3 fires?!
