Back Where I Come From...

...I totally didn't mention anything at all that over Father's Day weekend, I headed to Cape to hang out with my Papa: da Butch! It was nice because all day Saturday, it was just me and my daddy. We didn't really do too much, call us crazy and out of control but our day consisted of a trip to Wal-Mart for dog food, sitting in the parking lot at his bank and watching the Blue Angels, then getting some Andy's ice cream and heading home for the evening.

The next day, Butch, Sally (stepmom) and I went to church then we met my sister, Haley and my grandma for lunch at Port Cape-OMG!!! They had this amazing buffet of friend chicken, kettle beef, pulled pork, chicken-in-dumplings. mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, corn, bread and it was all HOMEMADE (as in we know for a fact that they cooked the kettle beef overnight)!!! And it was only $10 for an adult on the buffet!!! Anyways, poppa was happy because he was with his girls and getting some good eats.

We headed back to the house to visit before we got on the road and I snapped this picture of Papa and Haley (yes, I look exactly like my dad, I hear it all the time!):Port Cape is right on the river. Shows how much I pay attention to the news...I didn't know the water on the river was so high that the flood gates were shut but they sure were:

So it was a nice, relaxing trip home and even if it was just Cape, it was nice to get out of town for the weekend.

Sounds yummy! Glad you had a good time. Everytime the Mississippi gets high, Chris and I flock like mosquitoes to it and oh and ah.

That sounds delightful. Homemade food is always special! And it feels AMAZING to get away!!!
