This past weekend, in honor of Memorial Day, a couple of friends sent some e-mails, and we planned a last-minute get together. There is nothing sweeter than lifelong friendships and lazy summer nights.
And nothing says summer get together like a grill and some meat. Ah, delicious!
The essentials for any summer gathering: fresh strawberries, sweet corn on the cob, wokka moley, and sweet tea. Just mentioning these things makes me feel relaxed.
I walked around the house and yard to snap a few pics of the kids...and I just SMILED when I noticed that our kids were playing in little groups...
Here are the little ones, now officially 1st graders! *wiping tear* Sara Beth hasn't decided that playing with boys is gross yet. I hope it is several more years before she realizes that.
Here are the girls...sweet and funny and giggly and crazy.
Oh yeah! Get it, Zac Man!!!
And here's Montana in action!! Sweet.
And I absolutely adore the fact that--without any prompting--Zac lifted up his little brother for a dunk shot of his own. I just love these boys!!!
Here, are all the kids together (minus 1)...This picture just makes my heart happy. These kids have grown up together from the crib. There are several other special friends who should also be in this picture...
