Camping under the stars and an Owl

For three weeks we have been anticipating a multi-family cookout and overnight camping soiree. We all know how hard it can be to get together with friends as much as we would like so this was a great opportunity to spend some quality time with kids and 'grown-ups'.

The children's ages ranges from 7 months to 5 years old with plenty of grown-ups to join in the fun. It was great to sit back, relax and enjoy the summer weather.

The Food: We started with some bruscetta with sauteed zucchini, olives and a lively tomato mixture. We then had BBQ'd ribs, burgers, hot dogs, vegetarian burgers, quinoa salad, chickpea salad, potato salad and a vegetable platter.

Trucks and cars make every party a hit!
Fresh air-popped popcorn at near midnight. A katydid joined and entertained us.

Smores for dessert! A lovely night with lovely people.
Oh, the owl you ask? The owl was in the tree just above our tent. Imagine our thrill when this creature decided to 'talk' at us at 5:15 am.

Sounds like a lot of fun. We camped next to a race track this weekend. (big mistake).

I love the tents all next to each other and the flower is gorgeous!
My kids have been loving making s'mores too! YUM!!!!

That looks like SO much fun!!! My in-laws do this every year with about ten other families and they all take turns hosting -- they're on year 23!

Oh! I have never camped outdoors before but this is the way I'd do it - close to the house for emergency breaks!! 8-D

Everything sounds like it was perfect - food, company, weather. What a great time - definitely wish I were there!

That looks like a fabulous way to spend the weekend! I could have done without the 5 a.m. business though;)
