    Helen usually attends. I'm hoping my niece and nephews show up. They're all in that age range. Several teens. We get a range of kids, just depends. Bring the family, they're most welcome!

    I took my then 3 and 4 year olds last year, but we wont have them this year with us. Scubafool has a little girl in his care who might be 8/9? The rest of the kids are often pre-teen to teen (and as Jen mentioned have grown up there). There are plenty of non-diving spouses/SO in attendance who might be able to help with keeping them entertained/have ideas on what typically happens while the rest of us are underwater. While a couple of Colin's kids were babes when they first came, 4 is about as young as most of them come.

    Think based on what i see already taken, we might be in for:
    Condiments, some kind of salad side dish and a dessert, will look at the protein side as it gets closer - chicken or burgers given the brats are pretty well covered!

    As for community help, I'll probably move crap like tables for the buffet, we can crack eggs etc to help with breakfasts, security to keep the squirrels away from the food, and I "might" tend the fire once or twice as well! I will put a call into Alachua Co FD that we are in the area, and I've got it under control....

    They (the fire dept) will be calling up the big choppers for this one.

    Her Royal Princessness will be 9 by then.

    I still have a sombrero from Colin's house back in 2004 (?), is that the one you mean? I believe I picked up the piece of wood y'all gave me for a wedding gift, but not 100% sure on that.
