Despite the successful parties we've had in the past, the barbecue wasn't such a hit. There was a lack of promotion, people were busy, and other people were sick. We were also pretty unprepared. We got up around 9:30 and didn't even make it out to get groceries until around noon. We got hot dogs, smokies, rolls, and the makings for hamburgers and pasta salad.
It ended up being David and I, the kids, and David's friend Deanna along with her fiance, Aaron. It was still a nice afternoon, just lower key than our past gatherings. I think I should probably stick to food and let David take care of the guest list and invites.
