This is a potluck with lots of pies and cakes, a picnic celebrating birthdays. The party is both celebrating the birthday of Ethyl's eldest daughter Rosemary and their great-grandmother's 80th! Ethyl and Marion are sisters and they are the hosts. There is a lot of anticipation in the crowd. The cousins are running through the crowd. The children in the background are likely ready to steal from the dessert table. The sisters love children as they both teach 3rd grade. Ethyl has made her famous chocolate dessert which has been in the families for generations. There is a feeling of happiness, belonging and contentment. Just imagine if you could see beyond this picture to the full table of food. Dinner is finished, let's eat dessert!
