Our First BBQ of the Season!

Here are some of the highlights from Yesterday's BBQ with my family:
  • Some of the best food ever, in fact I am eating leftovers as I type this.
  • Playing in the sand box. I think we have half the sand in my house now.

  • Sending the kids outside and having them play forever in the warm weather.
  • Bike rides (with a few crashes) down the hill.

  • Morgan thinking she could ride the bike off the deck steps. Just in time for cousin pictures this week.

  • Eating more delicious food. There was a constant stream of food going into my mouth from 5:30 to 8:30.
  • Watching some HGTV. Not a big fan of the green home, not that I wouldn't mind winning it!

  • Of course some Rock Band.
  • A cute little chunk sleeping. Don't you just want to kiss those cute, chubby cheeks?

  • Finding new hiding places.


  • Consuming an entire pan of brownies in 5 minutes 42 seconds. I couldn't believe how fast the "kids" were inhaling those things! I mean, I hardly had any...;)
  • Getting my kids in bed after a long day. Always a highlight!
  • Going one more day with NO incident!!! The BEST thing ever!

First of all, your kids have no fear! Biking down the huge hill AND the deck steps!! By the way, someone ALWAYS has to scuff up their face before any type of professional pictures be it family pictures, school pictures, etc...
Second, don't you just love sending the kids outside to play??? Love it!

Looks like fun. Glad there were no incidents. Maybe the fresh air helps. Let's get started planning the second BBQ.

Thanks again for taking care of all the kids while I've been gone. It's been an amazing trip, but I'm ready to see the fam.

I just wanted to say how glad I am that your "incident" ticker has not moved in so many days(knock on wood). I am so happy for you and I hope you can add several more days to the ticker:)

Looks like fun. Sad to have missed it. I missed Trent too althought we were probably 50 yards away from each other at one point.
