Memorial Weekend Cookout

Since we live 50+ minutes from most of our friends, we don't have a lot of opportunities for hosting parties (it is easier for us to drive to meet up with people than to expect a group of people to come out to our place).

Anyways, we were pleasantly surprised when 16 of our friends (and 4 toddlers) were able to make it out to a cookout at our place on Saturday.

We have decided that having company is great in motivating us to finish up projects – we finished the railing on our rear steps and even unpacked a few boxes that were still waiting. We've been in our current house for almost 3 years and still have a handful of boxes that need to be unpacked.

Our yard was a big hit with all of the toddlers and our back porch seemed to be a favorite with the adults (it's our favorite part of our house too). 

Friends with kids headed out after dinner, while everyone else stayed and enjoyed visiting together on the porch until almost 9pm.

We are so blessed to have gotten plugged in with our life group and class at church. We will definitely have to do this again! *If you know our dog, you might be shocked to know she was not bothered that there were 5 toddlers running around trying to touch her!
