talk about your revolution, it's independence day

WORD OF THE DAY- GUSTATORY: Of or pertaining to the sense of taste.

what an awesome weekend we had. we headed in to the home of pattylicious for the noon day gathering. she made her famous baked beans, tater salad, and garlic dip. i don't think anyone got garlic dip other than us. the mayornator's family came over to enjoy the festivities, and for the most part everyone got along really well. after lunch it was time for washers. the hubby LOVES to play washers, so he was thrilled that steve brought them. everyone had a really good time. in fact we were having so much fun we didn't make it home in time for me to make bread for supper. we smoked a brisket at our house and it was fantastic. we also roasted corn on the cob which is alway soo good. the hubby made hot wings, they are way better than anything you get out. pattylicious requested trifle, so i was delighted to oblige. i whipped up a strawberry liqueur pound cake. it wasn't as good as the raspberry one i make, but it was still delicious. there was much splashing and playing in the pool. as well as holding sweet girls. saturday they came back over for pizza. we had the most delicious bbq pizza. again there was much playing. a great time was had by all. then suday we headed over to there house for a quick visit to pick up the motorcycle. i spent yesterday hanging at their house too. i find it interesting that no matter how often we see each other i am still way excited. i'm going to be bummed come august when she goes back to work. then our visits will be restricted to weekends only again. i hope everyone had a great weekend.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT- IN THE WORDS OF MORRIE SCHWARTZ "The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in."
