Inaugural Movie Night

This past weekend Rob and I hosted a fairly impromtu BBQ in the neighborhood.  We had tossed around the idea with a couple neighbors earlier in the week, but never solidified any plans and most of the neighbors were invited about an hour before the BBQ started.  Oh, and also, our neighbors are awesome.

As parties typically go around here, Rob did all the cooking.  He was the grill master for the evening.  I made a some appetizers and a pasta salad, and we made some steak fries as well.  Add this to the treats and other food the neighbors brought and we had a feast!

There were some heated Baggo matches down on the lawn while the kids played on the swingset and the ladies hung out on the deck.  And during a break in the Baggo action Rob settled down on a swing.

And three kids settled down on him.  Can you see Austin?  He's in that tangled web of legs and arms someplace.

As the sun went down, the movie screen went up.  Rob had been promising Austin some outdoor Clone Wars for awhile so he made good on his promise that night before we all put our kids to bed and came back for the feature presentation:  The Hangover.

Due to the Clone Wars, our movie was started a bit later so not all of us (me) could make it through the whole movie.  I knew that with the next morning being Father's Day that I would be getting up early to deal with some overly tired children.

It was a great night and I can't wait for more of the same the rest of the summer!
