bbq at the lake

We have been having exceptional weather here.  It has been plenty warm but not nearly has humid as it certainly has the potential to be here in Iowa. We have been trying to take advantage of it as much as possible.  It seems like Tatum is hardly ever fussy if we are outside so I try to keep us out for a good chunk of time every day.

Last weekend we went out to the lake and grilled with our friends Dave, Wendy and Oakley. The weather was beautiful, the company was great, and the food was delicious. It was a perfect evening. Except that I forgot we had Kubb in the trunk.  It would have really been perfect if Wendy and I had gotten the opportunity to demolish the boys in a game of Kubb again. We are kind of a big deal. :)
The lovely and very fun Shaha family.
Brennan made us some yummy raspberry peach cobbler in the dutch oven. Delicious.
We picked a spot right by a little playground.  Kind of silly because our kids are so small they can't really get a lot of use out of a playground. Or so I thought. But Oakley loved the baby swing (even when her mom pushed her slightly violently ;)) and Tatum loved swinging with Brennan.  She even got to try out the merry-go-round.

Evenings like this one make me feel about exactly how Tatum looks. It doesn't get any better than beautiful summer evenings spent outside with friends.

  1. In my defense Oakley normally likes to go really fast. Normally. Yeah ok it was kind of a crazy push though. You guys are so awesome! I love the pic of Tatum on the swing with Brennan. She looks super duper happy and Brennan has a sweet farmer's tan.
