Memorial Day

Happy Tuesday - wouldn't it be great if all work weeks started on Tuesdays?  I feel like (am hopeful that) this week will fly by with the late start.  Summer arrived in PA just in time for this kickoff weekend and we had the best weather all weekend long - finally.  We spent the weekend with friends at The Hotel Hershey and took in lots of pool time which I'll share all about tomorrow.

In an effort to ease into the week, today I'm giving a quick share of our annual summer kickoff BBQ - my parents had us all at their house last night to grill out - my favorite way to start off this fun season.

The weather was great - not too hot and we had a great cocktail hour with feta cheese dip, guac, a cheese platter and some others.  For the main course we had all the classics - burgers, sausages, pasta salad, asian coleslaw and fruit salad and we finished things off with some sweet treats from the chocolate capital.

doggie ice cream for the spoiled pups...

Looking forward to all that this summer has in store! xx
