We have the whole family over for a Memorial Day cookout. Nathan and Sam spend part of the time enjoying the toys that we keep at our house.
Meanwhile John, Sarah and Leigh discuss plans for the day.
Before we start our festive dinner, the boys, Ryan, Leigh and I work on a star project. I figure I can sneak in some patriotic info during this time. Both Nathan and Sam work hard decorating the stars.
Then it is time to prepare the food. John is trying out cedar planked salmon for the first time. It comes out really tasting good.
I make a fennel salad with orange slices and roasted beets.
Along with grilled asparagus, a pasta salad that Ryan and Jon brought, and a yogurt dill sauce for the salmon, we have a great dinner.
All too soon it is time for hugs and goodbyes.
