Day 40: BBQ in Limavady

After we left Bangor we headed up to Jonny's home town of Limavady. My parents stay with Sidney and Caroline and we were lucky enough to stay with Jonny's cousin Gareth and his fabulous wife Clare. I think the best part of staying with Gareth and Clare is the fact that they have a little girl, Kate who is Gemma's again and a little boy, Joe who is a little bit older than Angus. They all get on very well and they had a ton of fun together.

On the day we arrived in Limavady Gareth and Clare had a few people over for a BBQ, this time sans rain. Norman and Nicci, who were recently married in South Africa in April were in town from the U.S. to attend Quincy and Ali's wedding. It was great to chance for everyone to get caught up.

Clare is such a great hostess and cook. She had a beautiful spread for us and I do have to say my favorite was her new potatoes in a Greek yogurt sauce. I still dream about them today!

Here are a few photos from our night.

At bedtime Gareth was the dotting Daddy reading Joe and Angus a bedtime story.

We had a lovely evening and it was great to see everyone. We were all looking forward to our trip to England the following week-end for Quincy and Ali's big day!

It's so funny that curly's wife and son have curly hair but he does not. Or at least in the picture he doesn't appear too.
