A Birthday Cookout
Hello! I hope you all had a great weekend. We had a fun cookout for Phillip's birthday yesterday. We were so busy visiting with everyone that we didn't take pictures once company arrived, but here are some pictures of getting things ready.
Making chocolate cookies. We had homemade ice cream sandwiches instead of cake.
I set out most of the serving dishes ahead of time.
I also got out our corn on the cob holders.
And the swizzle sticks for stirring iced tea.
We had soda, cranberry/raspberry tea, iced tea and lemonade.
Phillip grilled chicken and sausages and we also had potato salad, tomato and mozzarella salad, corn on the cob, stuffed mushrooms and devilled eggs.
Thank you for taking a look and have a great start to your week!

Aren't birthdays fun?! Kylen's birthdays are our biggest event of the year! I began blogging just after his last birthday, so I've never blogged about any of them, but I think it will be a fun post when I do! I would love to be a party planner! LOL! :-)
