Yesterday we had a nice cookout party, with many family and friends in attendance. My good friend and drummer Rich (who turned 38 the day before) and his family came, as well as our friends Scott and Jenny and son Jack, Ellen, and Amy and Cameron. We grilled steaks, bratwurst, and hot dogs (mmm, animal flesh), and some vegetable kebabs as well. Mom brought a cake and there were plenty of yummy snacks too. Even though it was very hot outside, everyone had a great time, I think.
Eleya and I were exhausted after a day of whirlwind cleaning on Saturday and prep on Sunday so we hit the hay early. I took a vacation day today to unwind and then it will be back to the grind tomorrow morning.
