Girl Cousins

I think it was last summer when the girl cousins in my generation decided we needed to hang out more. So we started trying to get together once a month or so for dinner. I have to say "in my generation" because my dad is the youngest of five and there's a pretty good age gap between him and the next oldest. So the generations in our family overlap. My grandparents have grandchildren and great-grandchildren that are the same age. My daughter will be a great-grandchild but will have great-great-grandchildren older than her. Confused now, are you?

On Saturday we met up in Columbus. Sarah was in town from Montana and her parents live there. So we took a road trip to see her. We ate at a restaurant that was supposed to be really great. It was just okay for me. But the desserts were to die for! Just take a look. We each ordered something different and passed them around the table. Now that's the way to eat dessert! Mine was called the "Big Cup Of Chocolate". It was a warm chocolate lava cake with ice cream on top. Mmm mmm! Then there was carrot cake, upside down banana cream pie, chocolate peanut butter pie, apple pie a la mode and strawberry shortcake there in the middle. I can just hear diets being ruined all over the world right now in response to that pic.

Since the gals all read my blog, I decided it was time to give them a shout out. Here they are. You've seen my sister, Carla, before. Hope is in the middle. Yours truly on the end (still rockin the curls as you can see). Back row from the left are Debbie, Sarah, and Lisa. The only one missing is Alicia because she lives in DC. I had a great time as usual ladies. Can't wait to do it again.

Nice photo of all you gals, love the curls and you've inspired me to be 'curly' as well.

I think I gained 10 lbs looking at those sweet treats.

Very cool! I didn't have many cousins around my age (although I have about sixty cousins) growing up--I think getting together with yours is a great idea.
