Summa Time BBQ

When I realized a couple of weeks ago that we would have multiple friends in town this past weekend, I felt it only necessary to have a BBQ at our house. Megs first stop once she arrived in town, from Oregon, with Ava and Miles was our house and we had a slumber party; Dett, Tara and Jackson came up from LA to spend some time with family and friend; Stacie and Kevin flew out for 11 days from Boston for some much needed Pacific NW bonding. Despite the fact that many of our guests may have needed their passports for the journey south to our house, they still did it - and we had a blast. Sunday was my definition of the perfect summer day - cathing up with friends, sun/warm air, grillin' outside, lemonade, beers, ladder ball, kiddos running around laughing. And this morning, Steve and I awoke to Ava climging into bed with us - love her. Don't let these photos deceive you, I promise I'm not running a daycare out of my house.


All the ladies - Rauh, Michelle, Lynne, Dett, Lexi, Megan, Court, Spry, Cheryl, Misty, Steph, Jamie, Stacie, Krissy, me, Grout and Tara.


The sweet babes - Addi, Ava, Hayden, Jake, Miles, Jackson and Henry

This was not a girls/kids BBQ only, I just somehow didn't get any photos of the guys. I guess I need to work on capturing more photos of adults

Looks like the BBQ was a success. I am sad to have missed it.

Tara - the apple pie made with 58, unripe, rotten apples turned out wonderful! Too bad you missed out on that one :)

those apples weren't rotten...but they weren't ripe either!
That pic of Jackson with Miles' bottle made me LOL!! Those pics are so great, please send me the link so I can print some out and put on Ava's bulletin board.
It was sooooo great to see everyone, thanks so much Coffey for hosting such a great evening!!
