A Classic Backyard Barbecue

For years now, whenever we have asked Julie what she wanted to do for her birthday, the answer has always been, "backyard barbecue!" An early June birthday is great for this kind of thing, although it seems like we are constantly dodging summer storms (which we pulled off again this year...barely!).

So we fired up the old charcoal grill, did some burgers and dogs, plus some red peppers, onions, and assorted other veggies. Hěn hǎo chī!

The one deviation from the "retro throwback" theme was the ever-present moon bounce. This just seems to go over great with kids of all ages. Of course, as the years go by, we have to rent bigger and bigger ones...moon bounces are dangerous enough without the kids (now teenagers) banging into each other because they don't have enough room.

And speaking of danger, the only bummer of the party was when Nathan bumped his arm into the still-hot grill when watching Julie blow out her candles. He'll be bandaged up for the next couple of weeks. Feel better, dude!

And happy birthday, Julie!
