Today despite or in spite of the heat we gathered to BBQ and celebrate our families birthdays and Mothers day and about anything else we could think of. We meaning TJ and Sadera and Anthony braved the heat and did hamburgers and hot dogs and turkey burgers on the grill. They all looked like little lobsters when they came in.
TJ and I had made his famous mac and cheese, and there was potato salad, cole slaw, wings, corn on the cob, lemon pie and fresh strawberry short cake. Enough food to fill us all up and then some.
Following our big meal it was game on. Anthony wanted to play Take a Trip so bad so we started with that one. Now I have said before we are competitive especially the guys. Well Anthony plotted and plotted but alas although he had long lines of his trains it was Daddy John who finally won the game and the longest train trip. From there we moved on to Catch Phrase and finally Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader ah no we are not!
It was a great day and Jen, John and the kids made it even better with "Green" pans for both TJ and I. I think TJ had a good birthday!!

It was such a wonderful day filled to the brim with family, food, laughter, teasing and joking. This is what Sundays are all about. What a way to start a new week!
