Thanksgiving in Solomons Island Maryland

My three sons...Paul, Matthew and Jimmy

Thanksgiving holiday this year was nice to have us all together.  This is the first year that we have three away at college.  Sarah, Kevin's daughter is a junior at Peace College in Raleigh NC.  Jimmy is a Freshman at West Virginia University in Morgantown.  Paul is a sophmore at MICA in Baltimore (Maryland Institute College of Art).  Having them home is great because they have been gone off to college and of course I have missed them.  Matthew is a sophmore in our local high school and he is the only left at home now.  He was glad to see his brothers home for the holidays. 

Last year granddad refused to leave his home for Thanksgiving dinner and therefore missed the event.  This year, we were not going to let that happen, so we took dinner to him!  The Drum Point Beach club is a wonderful property on the water in Solomons Island.  My granddad built his home on the water and this is the community private club house.

Raw oysters is a tradition in our family.

How funny is this....Molly doesn't like the raw oysters but
feels obligated to assist granddaddy!  Love it! 

My cousin Molly has her own blog....I doubt she will put these
pictures on HER BLOG!

Happy Thanksgiving Stephanie! My husband's grandma had a cottage at Drum Point for years and some of my fondest memories are of my husband and I riding his motorcycle there to visit and play at the beach back when we were just dating :) Looks like you had a special day with family, what a blessing!

thank you for sharing this special day with us! I felt like I was there and the personalities of all were starting to come through the photos!

how blessed you are!
LOL to funny about the oysters! I myself hate shrimp but I can pull those things out of their tails faster than most shrimp lovers. Why?

Well my sister's loved them and as the oldest child the faster I removed those tails the faster I could get the garlic butter shrimp juices off my hands. Let me guess now you want Shrimp Scampi too?
