Warriors and BBQ's

blogged by me domestic goddess On 6/15/2009 11:29:00 PM
The weekend went too fast, as they always do. This past weekend was spent with good friends and their kids, as well as Izzy best friend Hannah. We had a BBQ Saturday night.
Mike made homemade burgers and bought along some ribs, and I did sticky BBQ chicken, sausages and my fav salad tomato and mozzarella, drizzled with olive oil and homegrown basil, and a salad of pine nuts and mango, yummy! All washed down with some Bulmers over ice...the perfect weekend.

The night ended with a good old session on Rockband, Guitar Hero and Singstar finishing on Bohemian Rhapsody, Wayne's World style, oh if only we had a video camera hooked up for that one!

The kids piled upstairs for about 10pm, but I could still hear peels of laughter at 1.30am when I went to bed...
Sunday morning we all woke up to another beautiful summers day and I cooked a full English for us all.
The kids started playing warriors, carried over from the night before, with our tree house being base. Well I just couldn't resist adding a few Anna touches........

Scary bunch eh?! Its amazing how kids can entertain them selves on so little. A few sticks from the wood supply, some discount face paint from Claires, and my ribbon stash!

It was soon time for Mel, Mike and the kids to go home and for us to enjoy the rest of the day in the sun. I did some more weeding in the garden and planted up some more peas and lettuce. the vegetable garden is looking great, and the lettuce will be ready to pick by next weekend. I can't wait!

On a final note, last night we watched The Reader with Kate Winslett; a brilliant film and very touching, I recommend highly. Anyone else seen it?
Tomorrow a garden update! Couldn't resist a tour with my camera over the weekend!
Hugs and thanks as always for stopping by, and don't be afraid to leave a comment, I love hearing from you.
