On Memorial Day my family went a little rogue and decided to have a joint Mothers-and-Fathers Day celebration. (Really, it was the only day that we all had free!) We kids BBQ’d up a storm – rum shrimp, burgers, salad, fried zucchini, corn on the cob, fruit salad, the works. It was sooooo good. I really didn’t get any prep photos since we were trying to get so many dishes out at the same time, but at least I managed to capture the end results…sort of.
The flies were lovin’ our burgers so we got out mom’s latest find of pop-up tabletop screens. So handy, right?
The shrimp are super easy to do, just boil down the rum glaze beforehand and grill ‘em for a few minutes. If you want the recipe just let me know!
The roses are fresh out of the garden, they’re my dad’s specialty.
Dante just loooves his Uncle Eirik. Maybe because he’s the only one who hasn’t sat on him when he was under his blankie.
Anja got a little hot running around with Sprocket and Dante.
My plate, sans cheeseburger. What? I don’t like my food to touch unnecessarily.
My poor family, the “I’m just testing my settings” trick gets them every time. (Except for Lars, apparently.) Love how Eirik has both dogs in his lap at once. :)
Since each kid has a dog now, once we’ve finished eating it’s all about the lap snuggles…and begging.
Ewww parental unit kissing!!
Stay tuned for more dog jumping photos, this time with their super dog capes! I’ll be back with those…eventually. Anybody else’s summer just filling up and flying by? I can’t believe it’s mid June already!
