FAMILY BBQ

video

We had a family BBQ at Julie's Saturday evening.  It was a fun time with kids and grandkids.  We were celebrating everything we could think of that we missed with a crazy summer of moving and other things.

Kaleb and Elijah had a little brotherly love fun in the pool.  HaHa.

Because we were combining celebrations, Birthdays, Graduations, Back to College, Water Polo Junior Olympics, new jobs, old jobs..etc.  Julie had a cake made to include them all.


A Cake for all the celebrations (from left to right)  Kaleb, Nick, Amanda, Elijah, Jon and Monica.  Of course we cut the cake so each could have their face!!!  It was quite the comedy night, as when you get our family together, a couple of our kids (namely Myk and Michel) are stand up or sit down comedians, and kept us laughing all night!!!

I love our family so much.  God has so blessed us with wonderful, caring kids, and a boat load of grandkids.  It doesn't get any better than this!

    1. Isn't that the cutest cake... They sure got a kick out of it...and trying to slice it so they could get a piece of themselves was a trick.

  13. Families and celebrations are the best. I treasure our times together. Just took Steve out for his birthday lunch...figured he needed a bit of time off from work.
    We went to sushi...my first time for the real deal. Steve ordered some delicious things and I would go back again for those yummy rolls.
