Memorial Day get together

We invited some friends over for a Memorial Day party thinking there was no way everyone would come….. most did. We thought about canceling the party, but what would we have done instead? I declared the party “on” and we started planning for how to feed 25 people.

Rahul is always an amazing host, grilling and grilling and grilling.

There was a no Paparazzi request at the get together, but I was still able to get a few pics of the fun.

First, Miss Mabrey.


The girl ran from the steps into the shallow end to the ladder at the deep end where her super, patient dad (with a good back)  dipped her under to her delight…repeat more than 100 times.


Both of these great friends were at the party….a miracle since Christa and her family have been in Belgium for the last 3 years. In fact, at their going away party Courtney announced that she was PREGNANT with baby Mabrey. My how time flies.


Aidan played a guitar solo for us. Most impressive? Jamie started singing along once he strummed because he knew the song! My little man might actually be a real guitar player.

Now for my favorite story of the evening. When it was time to leave, Miss Mabrey was having none of it. Trying to help out, I declared that we were closing the pool. Miss Mabrey thought about this for a minute and then asked “poo closed?” I will remember that question for so long. And her face with that innocent question will always make me chuckle when I think about it. Poo closed? Haha.
