Today was a beautiful fall day here in KC. A crisp cool air, smelling of 'Autumn' in all its glory. So we decided it was the perfect day for an early fall cookout, something of a much missed family tradition, we will cookout even in the falling snow if necessary. Pops fired up the smoker, Big Brother made hamburger patties mixed with onion, mushroom, black olives, and seasoning, and I made Guacamole (not normally a 'fall' dish, but delicious all the same).
We had Hamburgers, Bratwurst, and Hot dogs with chips and guacamole. A little later we shall be indulging in Fudge covered brownies and a caramel apple walnut pie, both unfortunately purchased instead of homemade, but they should be good. I took Cute Twins (3 year old twin nieces) outside and we played on the swing set and sweet sister in law took them into the fort. (Yes Meryl I am stealing the idea of Blog names!)
Sadly the family football team, lets call them the griefs, played horribly and lost big time. So now I am watching a documentary on our National Parks. The rest of the day will be spent relaxing, maybe going grocery shopping (one of my chores) and watching some tv, spending more time with Cute Twins and Beautiful Baby Girl (my 11 month and 3 week old niece!) Maybe even sipping Hot Cocoa in front of the fire.
