Memorial Day BBQ

posted on: 5.26.2009

Nothing like a good old BBQ to get you summer lovin! My cute grams hosted a backyard party to celebrate the holiday, and it was a blast! I'm so glad the weather report was wrong and we didn't get rained on. It was beautiful and fun to spend the night outdoors. My grams- she is the sweetest woman I know. Growing up, we always had a big sunday dinner at her house. I looooved playing at her house, and have so many fond memories there. Since she's gotten older, it's been harder for her to host dinners. I know she misses having us over, and we surely miss it too! Tonight was especially fun because I got to see Tate play and discover all the fun things that I did when I would play over there. Thanks Grams!!
Debi's famous Lemon squares and oreos
my bro and dad... aka Dirt and Ton Loc
the night was complete with a scooter ride up to Neffs Canyon
(and yes, we know this is a total blackmail shot for us both!... wyatt looks a little fruity, and I might be a bit too expressive!!) Zoom in and you'll see just how excited I was to be going on the scooter!
it's creamie season folks
my cute cousins... Eli, Annie, and Max
Eli is freakily flexible...
and really really tall!
Can you tell where my mom got her good looks from?! Love these women!
Ton Loc looking very serious... he's actually reading the Flight of the Concords dressing room requirements. My aunt somehow got a copy of it from when they came into town this past weekend. If you're wondering (which we all were) they aren't high maintenance. Very specific about having all organic things, but not too over the top.
My "man cousin" Max... who is shaving already!!!
For the little ones the highlight of the night was running through the sprinklers!
Tate wasn't so sure about it?
Annie & Gracie
dancin Tate
These two are the best of friends... and can never get enough of eachother!


  1. Looks like lots of fun, your little one is so cute. K, so I am so jealous that they don't sell creamies in AZ! You read that right, no CREAMIES!! Banana is my favorite and I was tempted to lick the screen. Just kidding LOL!!! Looks like you are getting ready for a new move, HOW EXCITING!! What a fun adventure. My Dad went to Medical School abroad in Guadalajara, Mexico and My mom says those were the best days of her life. So simple yet so so much fun. Good Luck and Congrats to Wyatt for such an amazing accomplishment. Lexi Ray
