A Cookout Birthday Party

Happy Tuesday to you all. Last Friday night our family gathered for an outdoor cook-out birthday party. In years past, we have all been camping and celebrated Mr. B's birthday around a campfire. This year, the family couldn't work out times to go camping together, so Mr. B decided to have his party in the next best thing- in their back yard. The weather was wonderful and we were told that the only time we could go inside was to use the bathroom.  Here sil is cooking the hotdogs over their fire pit.
The birthday boys-Mr. B turned 12 and Papa turned 63.
Little ones playing on the trampoline.

Rice Crispie treats and S'Mores for dessert.
Mr. B's haul, he is one happy boy.  After presents and dessert, many played frisbee on the lawn. It was a wonderful celebration and best of all, I didn't need to sleep on a air mattress. 
Today we are supposed to get rain.  Don't know what the afternoon will hold for me. 
Hope your day is filled with smiles.

  8. Nice to be back visiting blogger friends again after being so busy for so long with purging, sorting, a retirement party, and farewell at church. Looks like you have had some parties too! We will head north to visit our daughter and family soon and then return to get the house on the market.....life is always an adventure! So glad you are doing well.
