We kicked off our Labor Day weekend by finally going back to temple after a lengthly absence. Luckily our friends welcomes us back with open arms (literally, there’s lot of hugging at temple) and we got to enjoy a lovely service. I was honestly expecting it to be a little quiet since it’s a holiday season, but services were packed.
Afterwards we headed down to Jen and Evan’s for what they dubbed a “low-key BBQ”. Their low-key BBQ turned into an all afternoon and evening affair with 15 or 16 people stopping by as the day went on. It was a lot of fun though. There was lots and lots of food (which I forgot to photograph) and everyone had a delightful time.
Andrew has rediscovered our ridiculous blender. He was super excited about getting a Vitamix after our wedding and went on a smoothie making spree, but it has been hidden away for a while now. This past week it has reemerged for milkshakes and smoothies and today he has us tote it with us to Jen and Evan’s so he could make watermelon mint smoothies. It was a good idea. They were a big hit, especially with a splash of gin or vodka.
Lanny made a beautiful quiche to go along with hamburgers, sausage, pasta salad, guacamole, watermelon feta salad, pretzels, chips, cookies…
It was a great way to kick off the holiday weekend!
