We joined in with some other church friends for a Labor Day potluck meal at the home the Jones'. They live in what is known as "the East Mountains," just east of Albuquerque. It takes us almost an hour to drive up into the hills to where their house sits on a beautiful piece of property, overlooking the wooded valley, below, and the Sandias, to the north.
Here are a few pictures of our day.
Why wait for dessert? I'll show it to you first.
I caught some of the ladies sampling hot-from-the-oven jalapeno poppers, before the meal officially started.
Just eatin' and talkin'
You might know these two folks.
One corner of the Jones' yard.
Looking down over the tops of the trees, from their front yard.
A pretty porch decoration.
The kids enjoyed the swings, slides and playhouse.
Aaron and Brittany had gone hunting in the wee hours of the morning, so showed up in their camos.
One of the Jones' grandkids - "When can we eat?"
Before we all left, we were urged to take tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchinis and bell peppers, all fresh from the Jones' vegetable garden.
