|Your hostesses ~ BoPeep, Peachie & Wild Kat|
We unfurled the tablecloth (repro cherry print from MODA) and oohed when Peachie unveiled her layer cake. Made-from-scratch yellow cake with buttercream frosting, orange rosettes on top with basketweave around the sides. Who does this for a picnic?!

The guys got the grill going right away, serving up hamburgers, brats and lamb chops. A few snickering jokes were made about 'having enough meat to go around,' but in fact, they were slightly outnumbered.
Stopping just long enough to eat, the kids parked on a blanket for a while.
Between all the eating, we talked about the upcoming must-attend car shows (Hunnert Car HeadsUp and the Meltdown Drags). Discussed how to wear seemingly too large flowers in your hair. And handed out Band-aids to the children.
We filled our plates, changed places at the table, and filled our plates again.
There were a few more snickering jokes made, but not necessarily about meat. Seems someone was having a good time creating nicknames...
The kids were worn out by the end of the day. One had been buried in sand, the other went through three Band-aids, and yet another had a bloody nose (only discovered by Mom as he swooped down on the table looking for more cookies).
All said and done, it was a good day. I'm feeling like this could be the start to a beautiful tradition!
