Dear Memorial Day... Part 2,

5.29.2012

So my first post needed to be said. I am so grateful for the men and women that fought for this country. Thank you now, thank you forever.

Now this post is about a Memorial Day Cookout. Memorial Day is like the official start of summer. And usually the first BBQ of the season. And I was SO pumped when my best friend Cassidy said she wanted to help in throwing one together, and let me say... it was quite the success.

The invite I made... I was very proud of it!

Everyone brought delicious food. We had more food than we could handle. Vegetables, fruit, lemon bunt cake, BBQ chicken, all sorts of chips, Hawaiian Punch, cookies, Rice Krispee treats, Dr. Pepper, Hamburgers, salad... probably a lot more. Plus we had about 20 friends, Bocce Ball, and Wiffle Ball.... I mean really, could it get much better?

Cassidy and James brought a grill and it worked like a gem.

Eating and chatting.

The food (more came later... what!?)

Adam and I on our way to all the festivities.

So clearly I didn't do a very good job taking pictures. It was a lot of fun though. I love parties. I love them so much. And I love planning them. Cassidy and I had a great time grilling (that is right, the girls did a lot of the grilling) and I loved having a nice BBQ with my friends. I am making it a tradition. So be ready, you are invited next year.

Love,
Deidre
