parties: Father's Day in the Backyard

Father's Day Menu
We had quite the backyard party to celebrate Father's Day.  With a brother I love who is a father of two and a dad I adore, I decided we should celebrate them both.  This menu would work at your backyard parties all summer long.

To celebrate the musical, theatrical man that is my father, I set up a little photo booth with hats and mustaches (all the hats were brought by my mother from my father's collection). We bared the Houston heat and had a lovely time.

Mr. Hungry had quite the moment with the grill and my nephew Baxter insisted that his mother feed him while adorned with a hat and mustache.

Hope you had a lovely weekend and here's to more summertime fun. There's only one important dad missing from this picture.  We missed Mr. Hungry's father, Ron... hope you enjoyed the day in Missouri!

The menu included:  
Kale Caesar Salad
Lemonade Tea

Keeping it REAL: Now there were not as many doozies as the last party I was a part of, but there were a few mishaps.  While trying to pull my camera out of a cabinet, I spilled an entire can of paint primer on our wood floor.  About an hour later, we discovered my brother and sister in law's dog, Rosie had eaten our second batch of sliders off the cooler when no one was looking.  Thankfully, we got the primer off the wood and everyone had plenty to eat...but it just wouldn't be a party that I'm a part of without a few tragedies.
