We had a fantastic time celebrating Memorial Day on Sunday with food, family & friends!
Our son, Bobby, invited some good friends since elementary school days to join us for the celebration.
Jeremy, Justin & Bobby
Jeremy & Justin were both in my 3rd grade class.
What wonderful men they have grown up to be!
Jeremy & Justin are both Veterans of the war in Iraq.
Jeremy is still serving in the Army & is being relocated to Ft. Benning, GA from Hawaii.
Thank you guys for your service to our country!

Silly me didn't take pictures of everyone!
We were so busy having fun!
We had a wonderful time enjoying our meal around this table.
Our 'Smoked Meat Fests' have become a tradition for
the 3 summer celebrations,
Memorial Day, 4th of July & Labor Day.
It's a lot of work, but so worth it!
My sister was a tremendous help for this event.
She was a great sous chef!
I'd make the mess & she'd clean it up.
I tried a new recipe from Pinterest for our meal.
It was a hit!

1 (14 3/4 oz) can cream-style corn
