Since my family will pretty much jump at the chance to hang out, no special occasion required, it seemed pretty fitting that we would have an impromptu get together at my Uncle Paul's house in Hull on a Thursday night. I mean, why not right?! A few of my cousins were home [they live in Florida, Virginia and Canada], so I guess it wasn't completely random, but getting cousins together from all over the area on a weeknight with limited notice is no easy fete. It's summer - who cares about work or responsibilities! The days are longer, the sun is brighter, the weather is warmer, it's impossible to be in a bad mood when the weather is gorgeous. I just love it.
Unfortunately, Ratty wasn't able to go, though that didn't stop me from calling him and telling him to hop on the ferry and I would pick him up at the Shipyard, I think I had him for about 10 seconds before he thought better of the idea. Oh well, I tried!
We spent the whole night laughing, eating, drinking and staring off into the fantastic view from my Uncle's porch. Seriously, I am not sure if there is anything better. I'll have to research this and get back to you.
I think this has to be one of my favorite porches of all time. It's the perfect party porch!
I cannot wait for summer to get here - I am itching for the warm weather and all the awesome other things that summer brings!
