memorial day dinner

Steven and I had a little barbecue for memorial day when he finally got home from work yesterday. He left at 5:30 this morning to go to the Women's College World Series in Oklahoma City with the Mizzou Softball team {which it totally awesome!}, and had no choice but to go into work yesterday to get things ready.

While he prepared the grill, I prepared the food! We had brats, asparagus, and fruit. Quick and easy - and yummy! Neither of us ate lunch since he had anticipated coming home around 2, but unfortunately it took longer. So both of us were pretty hungry by the time we sat down to eat!

I had thought about going to the parade earlier in the day, but sort of forgot about it until it was starting. Oops. But I was thinking about all the men and women who put their lives on the line to help the rest of the country. And the wives and husbands, mothers and fathers, siblings and children who have to let them leave for months at a time. You are all brave. Much braver than I... I don't think I could do it.

Sorry there are no pictures of the complete meal. Like I said, we were hungry and there was no time for a photo shoot once the food was done! :)

Did you all have a good weekend? Did you have any special meals in celebration?

I hope you all have a great week!
