Memorial Day Picnic 2010

Just a quick note..

I was so busy this past weekend with my Memorial Day picnic and all!

We had the best weather...blue skies all day.

Lots of family turned out...bringing lots of food!

Of course it was all very delish!

This was our 2nd time to host a Memorial Day Picnic...

with hopes of many more to come.

I had a nice time, but it felt like it went tooo fast.

I love to throw a party,

but I have to say,

the amount of time I put into it,

I don't know that I got enough time to enjoy it.

Being the hostess with the mostess is no easy thing.

That's me right there at the grill.

Don't get me wrong,

I totally enjoyed my family and friends,

had a few laughs,

ate some good food,

but I have to admit,

when it was all over,

I had a slight feeling of disappointment.

How could that be?

I think what was bothering me

was that everyone left between 8:30 - 9:00 PM.

We were planning on making a fire

and sitting around into the night B.S.ing ...but...everyone left.

Well, not EVERYONE.

My good friend Becky and her husband and their three kids did stay for the fire.

I did really appreciate that.

My kids and her kids got to run around in the dark with flashlights

and pretend they were hunting lions.

Those are the kind of times

that great childhood memories are made of!
