John's sister Gina and her family were in town from Florida. We usually have a family cookout when she's in town. And this year was no different. It is always a big crowd and a lot of fun. Everyone pitched in and I got to use the new pail that I painted for some long neck root beer and grape crush. The boys loved drinking them. It was really hot but didn't seem to stop any of the yard games or the family fun. It was John's niece Jennifer's birthday so we had birthday cake and her grandson loved it. We miss Gina and her family and were glad to host the yearly party.
