The "neighbor's" fish fry

The 2nd annual Tappel fish fry was held Good Friday at the neighbor's new house. 

Cousin Nick helped to fry some catfish.

The kids eagerly await all 42 of their cousins, great aunts and uncles, and even their Great Grandma!

Jeremy breads fish.

Let the eating begin!

The blacksmith helped fry fish too. I believe 7 gallons of fish was fried.

The work continues and the eating proceeds.

After the sun set and the evening chill set in, a bon fire was enjoyed.

The 2nd annual fish fry was just as successful as the first!

Looks like a good time! As you know, inste4ad of a neighbor's fish fry, we had a couple's fish can. Sounds silly when I say it that way. :)

That's a lot of fish. How dee-lish that meal must have been.
You do FAMILY in a big way, don't you.

Now that is just plain fun. You had good weather luckily!

It looks like the neighbors have a great spot for outdoor entertaining. With a big family like that, you do need room for tables, etc.

Glad you all had fun.

I hope the snow I heard about in Missouri was not in your area today.

What a great fish fry for you all. We love fish fries, especially with catfish...and hush puppies.
Looks also, like you had the perfect day.
