Saturday night was our annual Memorial Day Cookout at the Smiths. I can’t believe it was our third year of this tradition!
Each year, our number grows. We now have 10 adults and 10 kids. Good think Katey and Waylon’s house is perfect for this many.
We all played outside until the men finished up the meat preparations. They (well, Waylon really but the others watched!) smoked chicken & fried wings for us all to enjoy. The rest of us brought the sides and desserts to round out a delicious meal.
It was perfect weather and a perfect time with GREAT friends!

On a whim, I decided that we would go bowling today. I have been carrying around 4 free game passes for 2 years and it was about time we used them. We invited Kate and crew to join us. It had been too long since we hung out and I knew she would be up for an adventure.
We met up at Stars and Stripes and immediately realized this day was going to be a lot of fun! They put us on the neon lanes, which were so cool - and VERY far away from any other bowlers! So nice!
We signed up for one game and let the boys go first. Sam is a pro! He loves playing on the Wii and had already been real bowling once before. Jackson quickly figured it out and enjoyed it for 4 frames. After that, he was done and just wanted o eat and play the video games. I wouldn't let him in the arcade until we were all done.
Sam lasted not only for all 10 of his frames but he also bowled the remaining 6 for Jackson!
Kate took home the win, but I was so excited because I bowled a TURKEY, three strikes in a row! Yay me!
It was a fun afternoon and so nice to be with friends!
