Sunday dinner

Auntie Cathy comes over to smell the flowers that she gave Lily.

Joe really took a liking to Reggie, his Auntie Tammie's new puppy

Splashing around on a hot Sunday afternoon

Look what my Joe caught in the bushes...

Yep, a snake. Imagine that!

Cousin Shawn Coventry, brother-in-law Joe Messina, Uncle John Desmet,and hubby, Rich Messina, pull out the bocce balls...

The boys get into the bocce tournament going on in Nano Joe's yard...

Lily and her great grandfather, Nano Joe Messina

Lily and her great-grandmother, Nana Mary Messina
Every Sunday afternoon, the Messina clan gathers at Nana Mary and Nano Joe's house for Sunday dinner. This has been going on for...let's see...decades. Nana Mary will be 94 next month and Nano Joe is 95. Every Sunday there are 4 generations of Messinas together. This is a great time for us to catch up with Rich's cousins and their families and his aunts and uncles.
