Memorial Day

My grandmother and uncle were planning on joining us for a barbeque to celebrate Memorial day. However, Grandma was not feeling well and they decided to stay home. So, we had plenty of food and called around to see who was interested in coming over for a BBQ. The Ng family and Manning family joined us! We set up our canopy in the backyard ( just in case we had some liquid sunshine : ) and brought out our camping chairs and folding chairs so everyone had a place to sit.

For lunch we served normal barbeque fare. David was our chief chef and BBQ man! He does an excellent job of grilling! The Mannings brought salmon plus ice cream and chocolate sauce for dessert. Josh Ng made 2 peach pies and an apple pie to contribute as well.

After eating, we played a few rounds of Catch Phrase and physiatrist which was lots of fun and of course, we all talked! The boys also played some football.

Towards the end of the day, Kacy and Stephen Manning brought out their guitar and played for us and Jonathan and David brought out their violin and bagpipe and played some tunes and then a tune together.

It was a fun way to end a wonderful day! As people started to leave, we heard a few cracks of thunder and were glad the storm had held off until then!

Stephen--I will have to agree with you. Last year was so much fun and this year we all were missing the Bittners! What did you all do on Memorial Day? Remember us?
