Breezy Days: Our Backyard Memorial Day

Our Backyard Memorial Day

May 27, 2014
Ryan and I decided last minute that we wanted to host a BBQ, because he had most of the weekend off and we were in the mood for some good grub. We grocery shopped, mowed the lawn, and cooked food all day Monday preparing for friends to come over. Even though it was a ton of work {some of it unnecessary and self-inflicted...does everything really need to taste good and look cute??}, I just love bringing my friends together and enjoying their company. It is such a treat for me!

Ryan made amazing ribs while I made baked brown sugar chicken wings with roasted red pepper dipping sauce, 7-up punch, and fruit salad. Our friends brought over chip/dip, potato salad, and drink sides...I'm still stuffed! We made a short trip to the outlets then came back before the sun went down and made our grill into a make-shift fire pit to roast s'mores. I am grateful for the service that is given for our country to make days like this possible :)
