Celebration Party at the Brights

We had a great night on Saturday at the Bright's house. Lauren, Jenni, Anna and Morgan showed up early to help get everything set up. When we arrived Anna was following Doug around the yard helping him with the bonfire set up and asking him her usual thousand questions. She even offered to brush their dog Marley so he would look spiffy for the party too. Anna is always the little helper. I think she also helped herself to most of their blueberries and raspberries in the garden.

Doug and Kathy were awesome hosts. Doug made some fabulous smoked pork shoulder and Kathy had delicious corn, vegetable salad other fixins. Jenni brought heavenly dessert and bread from Carrabbas and there were plenty of cold drinks to go around for everyone on such a warm night.

The kids made smores and had outdoor movie night watching "Toy Story" on blankets in the yard. Anna and Morgan are still raving about how much fun they had, and Michael declared it "The best night EVER!"

What a great turnout of friends and family for a summer Saturday night. Everyone there was a big part of my journey these past 2 years - I consider them all my co-survivors!

Thank God for AWESOME friends and family!
