Ruby Tuesday - A Late Father's Day

Father's Day was last Sunday June 17 but my middle son David was with his Air Guard unit in Germany and only returned last Tuesday.  So we proclaimed this past Sunday June 24 as Miller Family Father's Day.  I am happy to report that all were present.  My 3 sons are lined up behind the sofa and are in descending age: Adam, David, and Luke.  To Luke's right is Cara holding their daughter Wren.  Sitting on the left of the sofa is David's wife Renee and their daughters Katy and Gabby.  On the far right is Adam's wife Judi and their daughter Sarah is next to me, and Hannah kneeling in front of Sarah.  Sitting in front is Cara's son Joshua.  We are proud to have him as he is the only boy.  And of course no family gathering is complete without Smokey our famously mellow Pit Bull.

Sue fixed a fine dinner of baked ham, a corn casserole, tabbouleh, and a mixed fruit salad.  Desert was Carrot cake with cream cheese icing, or strawberry rhubarb pie - or both. Yum.  Three generations of family are hard to get in one place for a picture but we managed, all 12 of us.  Thank you Sue for fixing the dinner and taking the picture.  You are a Saint.

Oh yes, I almost forgot.  What qualifies this as a Ruby Tuesday post?  The nice little red hot rod parked on the floor at bottom left.  I couldn't wait to share this great Father's Day.

More Ruby Tuesday

What a fabulous family photograph and one to treasure for the rest of your life. Children are spread so far and wide nowadays that to get that number together for one special day is BRILLIANT.
When I was 70, seven years ago, all I wanted was my family together and, to ensure everything was just right, I booked a photographer to come to my home. I shall request the same in three years' time:-)

I have to say that I've ALWAYS wanted a red roadster like this...only BIG...and REAL. :)
You have a fine looking family and I know how great it is when they are ALL there with you.
Your little car is perfect for RT2.
