Got Kids?

Yesterday we had an impromptu BBQ at our house. We invited four other families who didn't seem to have plans on Memorial Day, and we all got together...with lots of food! One thing that you can always count on, when you tell people to "just bring whatever" is that there is always plenty of food for everyone.

The kids had such a great time together. I didn't stop to count how many kids there were, but here are as many as would fit around the table. The rest were eating on the floor.


I actually hardly saw the kids, except when they were eating. They were outside, playing in the jungle of our back yard, playing out in the cul-de-sac riding bikes, playing downstairs with the toys, or jumping on the trampoline. We caught some of the little 3 and 4 year old kids all jumping together. They would sit down, count to five, then all stand up and jump. It was pretty cute.



We really had a great time together. It made Heath and I realize that we haven't really hosted very many things since we moved from California. We want to have a couple's game night again...and soon. We are back in the saddle!

We had a BBQ with 5 families but no one wanted to host that many so we did it at the park. It worked out great and no one was stuck cleaning up!
