Party time, excellent

Sammy and I heralded the unofficial start of summer with a lovely barbecue at my friend Meghan's house.  It was a pretty steamy day, but fortunately Meghan had just the thing to keep everyone nice and cool--a kiddie pool!  Sammy changed into his oh-so-stylish baby speedo and spent most of the afternoon splashing around, which in turn kept all of us adults entertained.

Hip to be square

After a delicious dinner of grilled steak, eggplant and other goodies, we all relaxed outside and enjoyed some summer-appropriate drinks, like Pimm's cups and a yummy bourbon slushy that Gretchen made.  It was so nice to enjoy an evening of adult conversation...not too mention the many pairs of hands ready and willing to take over on Sammy duty so I could sit back, relax, and really enjoy myself.

Party lights

The afternoon soon faded to evening and we were still having a great time, so I put Sammy to bed and made plans to spend the night there; fortunately, I had thought ahead and packed a "just in case" bag, so Sammy and I had everything we needed for an impromptu slumber party.  I can't think of a better way to mark the beginning of the summer than a fun-filled night of good food, delicious drinks, and fabulous friends.
