Our time together as a family was so short...
We certainly wanted to make every moment count.
Hubby was not going to let them all leave
without treating 'his boys' to a meal of our BBQ Ribs.
The perfect ribs start in the crockpot,
right after lunch.
What is the best way to spend a hot summer afternoon
waiting for the ribs to cook?
A Bocce Ball Match.
Our yard is already small,
not to mention that now,
over half of it is a construction zone.
The course was challenging with all of the obstacles...
Extreme Bocce Ball.
We couples each played as a team.
The competition was fierce.
Each team won a match.
Hubby and I finished the dinner preparations
during the play-off round.
Along with the BBQ Ribs, we served
Emily's Greek Pasta Salad
Amy's Grilled Zucchini from Grandma's Garden
Texas Baked Beans
Potato Wedges on the Grill
The Bocce Ball Tournament generated a hearty appetite.
We polished off three racks of ribs!
Outdoor fun and plenty of great tasting food...
but the best was the time spent with our family.
