Barbecues



Paul had three days off this weekend and we wanted to do something. Then reality swung by to say, NOT enough money, so we decided on a Barbecue yesterday. Kathie and Robb joined us along with Katie & Sabby. Barbecue's aren't all that easy when it's 113-115 outside. We all sat around in the pool which though no longer cool water, is still refreshing. This is necessary so we cool down enough to get the food cooked later. When it's 115, we still eat inside even with the wet bathing suits cooling us down! It was a great day; not a lot of pre-planning - it just came along.

I miss the days when we all lived closer; and these impromptu Barbecues remind me how much fun we can still have. Fourth of July is turning into quite a party. So again, I remind myself what I tell Lyndsey so much; All this may not be how we always thought it it would be; but that doesn't mean it can't still be good.
Have a nice day everyone and thanks for taking the time to read my blog today.

Thanks for your visit to my blog this morning. I hope you enjoyed my post today. And I wanted you to know I was here. Kind of like "Kilroy" was here...remember those drawings everyone used to make?

I enjoyed reading your blog post for today and I thought the photography was good too. I feel sorry for the collie dog if the temps are 115 or so. Wow. I guess the dog goes where the air is.

I can't believe it's that hot - I'm not surprised that you eat inside, I'm amazed that you are outside at all, let alone cooking on a barbecue! Lovely to be with the family, but it's hard when you miss those who you would like to be there.

Why can't you ever post a good picture of me. That one does not show my good attributes!

It was fun - except for that movie Paul let me pick out....good times, good times..... :/
