Wow, that's a lot of people for that size condo. Make ahead? For meals bake a ham and a turkey (better yet if you smoke/grill). Can be made into hundreds of options, Casseroles to sandwiches, all meals, snacks. Can be served warmed or cold. Very versatile.

I love doing prep work. And it will be good to see Jenny again. I'll come with my scooter and let the kids all have a ride. I will even be glad to make that Hershey's Chocolate Cake and frosting.

That's very generous of you Addie. I want the first ride!

It would be nice to see Jen again but I think we're all set. SO has a sister in the next town over who is having a big family reunion Saturday so that's one day taken care of. SO's daughter has a friend who has a pizza place in NH so we're going there for a meal. You get the idea.

And you would get the first BIG slice of the cake.

Wait a minute. Let me think about this.

SO's daughter and two sons (21 yo and 10 yo) arrive this afternoon by car. Her husband (my only male guest-we keep each other sane) arrives tonight by plane. SO's sister and granddaughter arrive by car sometime Saturday.

That's nice and spread out. It will let things get back on an even keel between arrivals (as much as can be expected).

Sadly, the weather isn't cooperating. We had several outdoor things planned but they could be a problem depending on when the thunder showers happen every day.

It's pathetic here today. And was yesterday, too. Just when you think it's letting up a downpour lets loose. Some real boomers, too.
And likely will be like this into next week, though MA seems to have different weather than states directly east of PA.
