A Visit and a Barbecue

Last Saturday we had the opportunity of visiting Grandma and Grandpa at their home.  We were really excited when, after finishing a few things around their house (turning their garden, cutting up branches, weed-eating, etc.), Grandpa went to the old charcoal barbecue and lit it.  Grandpa’s barbecuing is famous among all his grandchildren.

Starting the Barbecue

Once it was running nicely, he put the sausages on.

Everyone stood around to watch the barbecue.  Well, I guess it really didn’t take that many people, but we had a great time talking and listening to Grandpa tell stories about when our father was a child.  Meanwhile, Mommy and Grandma were inside doing the other preparations.

Before long, the sausages were done and we took them inside to eat.

lots of sausages almost done...

We had a great time around the supper table and afterwards we talked in the living room while a few of us did the cleanup.  It is always a privilege to go to our grandparents’ place and enjoy their company and hear stories from past years.
