So my 'ladies who lunch' group has had a great year of fun, trying out quaint restaurants, getting together to sew and quilt, but the one thing we've never done is get together as families. Trying to arrange a bbq for this many people is no small feat. We did quite a bit of corresponding before we could nail down a day but we did it! The weather didn't cooperate fully, but we didn't let it dampen our spirits. It was so funny to watch the FaceBook threads go on and on about who would bring what and were we having kids come etc, etc. In the end, it was a lovely evening, with great food that everyone brought. I even recieved a few hostess gifts that I'll share about in a later post:) Thanks to our hubbies for braving an evening with all us crazy ladies!
