Weekend visitors

My brother and sister-in-law came to visit this weekend. Alec grilled up some really awesome ribs for dinner. Lauren and Ben had a great time with her bubble blowing machine. He took care of popping the high bubbles for her. She let him know that Mommy's favorite bubbles are the broken ones.

We had bacon and eggs for breakfast. Alec and I time out dinner together pretty well with a kid, but this was a new experience for us with 2 kids and trying to prepare breakfast. Alec made a pot of coffee and baked the bacon. It wasn't clear to me how long that would take, so I made scrambled eggs, fried potatoes, and toast. When Alec came in to finish the bacon in the microwave, bacon grease got spilled on the floor and Lauren stepped in it. While I ran the burn under cold water in the bathroom sink, Alec put out a grease fire in the oven.

We'll probably wait to have company for brunch again. At least until our timing gets better...

Anyway, here's Ben and Lindsay:
And Maria and Lauren:
And the 4 of them. Ben is feeding Lindsay a bottle. Lauren and Maria are surfing the Internet looking at pictures of bugs and counting their feet:Ben's parting words, "When we're thinking about having kids, we'll come down and spend some more time with yours. That'll scare us out of THAT idea..."

What do you say, Internet? They look pretty comfortable, don't they?

Yes they look great together. But what were you thinking? The whole family is at least part Jewish, but you trusted one of the fully Jewish people cooking pork? Think these things through...

Sorry, Dad. We'll try harder next time with the pork products.

Hah! I challenge either of you to produce ribs half as good as those. If there can be Jews for Jesus there can CERTAINLY be Jews for quality BBQ

Pushers. I bet you stand on corners and say to passers by, "Hey, you wanna have kids? You know you want to."

As for Jews for Bacon I don't see why not. After all I know a Vegetarian for Bacon.

Everyone should be for bacon! All that fatty, salty goodness - how can it be wrong?
