Shopping with Liz

We are busily preparing for the family reunion. The first one that I remember was 40 years ago in 1969 at the Isaak Walton League clubhouse in Madison, SD.

Yesterday Liz and I filled two flatbeds at Sam's Club Warehouse. Now, I have my issues with Sam's Club and Wal-Mart, but when you are shopping for 50 people for 5 days, sometimes you just need the big box of whatever!

We have been doing this shopping for a few reunions now, and the excel spreadsheet has become a google docs spreadsheet and now we are able to collaborate around who is bringing what and who will be where and when.

Liz and I purchased 18 loaves of bread, so many rolls and buns, 30 lbs of pork, 25 lbs of chicken pieces, 25 lbs of turkey, dozens of eggs, lbs of cheese and deli meat, flour, sugar, olive oil, bacon, sausage, and tons of other items- my cousin Tim is bringing the produce from the wholesaler that he uses.

So, the tremor of excitement is running through the girls, and my sister stil has a "to-do" list that is impressive. As soon as I can I will post that photo I took of the sky outside of Sioux Falls on our way home from round one of hunting and gathering.
