Memorial Day BBQ

What I'm Wearing: Shirt-Wrangler, Jacket-Lole', Shorts-Gap, Shoes-Sperry

How did you celebrate Memorial Day?  TT and I got up early with the twinners, and his brothers to go fishing.  We didn't catch much (I didn't catch any), but it was a lot of fun.  TT and I spent the weekend with Crew and my family up in Midway relaxing, eating, playing pool, and walking.  Much needed.  Later on, we went Memorial Day shopping (which was unsuccessful), and headed to the BBQ/my Grandma's birthday celebration.  
My Mom made this amazing homemade banana cake with incredible frosting and banana layers.

Lovely Grandma Bets.

Aunt Joan's guilt free salsa.  I ate it by the spoonfuls.

 Grandma 'D' - the birthday girl.

 Muy - I love this shirt.

My cup.
More. Now. 

How was your memorial day? Did you have a BBQ?
I love backyard BBQs.
