Family Cookout

With Dad and Mom out of town during Dad's birthday (attending a We Care board meeting), the brainstorming for a belated party began. With a load of scrap wood in our burn pile, we decided a family cookout night would be just the thing! We have the perfect spot beyond the windbreak behind our house. Let the preparations begin!

Carrying out the food. 

Preparing the roasting sticks

The summertime feast

Happy Birthday!!!

Sisters = best friends


The weather was absolutely PERFECT for the evening


Picnic fun

Alaythia made dad his favorite dessert - cherry pie!

Of course you can't have a bonfire without s'mores!

As the evening wound down, we pulled out the guitar out and made some merry music.

What priceless moments, these memories made as a family. 

“Now therefore, our God,
We thank You
And praise Your glorious name."
1 Chron 29:13
