You think I would have gotten pictures of some of these tasty items but I was way too busy enjoying them and besides, nothing lasted long once it hit the table.
I did manage to get a picture of our cake which Lori used for the dessert though.

Under the shade of the old oak tree, the world slowed down for a while. The unbearable heat of the day became a warm blanket lulling you into a relaxed state of laziness. The aroma of delicious things cooking permeated the air. It was a good way to finish a long day.

I've seen this Art car around town a few times and it just cracks me up.
