Well, my friend and I went to Home Depot.
My husband and another friend stayed home to clean the kitchen. Love that!
Relaxing by the fire was the perfect end to the day. I love the ebb and flow of conversation around a fire, while watching the flames dance.
Here are the pictures of the deck this year:

Number 7 has appointed himself the reining grill master at our house, so he was in charge of the tri-tip roast once I had prepared it for the grill. Right after he took the meat outside, he came bounding back in saying that he needed "the flipper." 1960s child that I am, I immediately began to sing him the theme song to that iconic TV show "Flipper." (Anyone remember all the words?)
Number 7 looked at me like I had three heads, picked up the BBQ spatula from the dish drainer, and exited the kitchen without another word.
The tri-tip was excellent.
