Great fun with the bloggers

Today was the big day. We hosted a barbecue at our home. I barbecued burgers and hot dogs. Marc made brisket, roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, cherry cobbler, chocolate chip cookies and various other yummy things.

Now, with limited interruption for an occasional comment, some photos...





Isn't this next guy a cutie? (Okay, so I'm biased.)



















We had a break in the festivities to watch the Kentucky Derby...









Check out this cherry cobbler Marc made...



And here's what left of the piles of chocolate chip cookies Marc made...





My favorite part of this next photo is Matt laughing (on the right). I don't know what had him going, but his expression is great...



I'll post this next photo, since I know there are people in the other shots who won't like theirs, so why should I be immune? This was my mistake, for letting Patrick have the camera. Thanks a lot, Patrick--catch me slumped in the big chair... could you possibly have made me look any fatter? :)



Later, the gang learned that Aaron had posted photos from last night's gathering at Barrage.















Oh, and this last one is right after Jase took a close-up shot of Jere's eye. Don't ask...



----------------------------------

I forgot this when I initially posted the photos. Two dear friends went out to run an errand while I was out back barbecuing burgers. I was told that they had gone to Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart? For what possible reason could they be doing that?

After they returned, I looked at the front lawn and found out. Very funny, guys!

Thanx for the pix, Jess. It looks like a great spread! And loved the flamingos! No lawn should be without one!

Does jase's shirt say "Meat"? I love it!

And pink flamingos too. They're lovely. I don't get the joke. ;-)

Looks like the get-together was a wonderful success. Not only did the food make my mouth water, but some of the hotties there did too! :-)

Your home is beautiful (despite the flamingos, lol) and I'm sure you & Marc were impeccable hosts.

I only wish you hadn't barred me from coming...*g*

What a lovely time: scrumptious food, beautiful house, wonderful, wonderful company. I can't believe how the house has transformed since we saw it. Amazing job.

Thanks so much for throwing together this bash, guys. We had a delightful time!

Oh, and Wal-Mart? I have no idea what you're talking about. Ho hum... La dee da...
