We did it. The housewarming/tiki party/summer kick off party is in the bag. From what Sam tells me, everyone had a pretty good time. Grab a lei and let's get going.
James came over at noon to start cooking food. Huge thanks to him, without James we would just have had chips and cookies. He made all the dough for the pizzas by hand and then stood all night cooking for people. Last winter he was in a car crash and shattered his pelvis. So him standing the entire night in the kitchen was awesome. Sam made tons of potato salad, some really good orange macaroons, and lots and lots of salsa. Chris smoked the pork butts in his green egg. Big thanks to everyone that helped with food.
The calm before the storm. Saturday was in the nineties. I think we ended up going through 500lbs of ice keeping the keg cold.
We ended up having over 50 people swing by. A good time was had by all. Between the patio and the kitchen everybody fit. A front moved through later in the evening and brought cooler temps. The lightning got close, but it didn't rain.
Jenn and Ian made it even though the next day they were moving to Hawaii. Rob made it too before he headed to Germany. We love making friends with the people at school up at Leavenworth, but they all have to leave after a year. Good luck!
Brett brought his guitar and ukulele. The tunes were a blast and much appreciated. Notice the keg floating. Yep, it didn't last past ten o-clock. Good job everybody.
Shelley and Matt enjoying the festivities.
Lisa wondering if this story could get any better. It probably was well-thought out, concise, and totally understandable.
Yep, Mike finished the keg. Who's living the high life now?
Is that cold red wine in a plastic glass. Kelley is a classy girl what can I say?
I guess we started a fire at some point.
The hostess looking very festive.
Luke looking very surprised after seeing what is next. Mark thinks ewe's not fat, ewe's fluffy.
The aftermath. Of course by the time I woke up things were pretty well cleaned up.
