Back-to-school BBQ

The evening air was hot. The sun relentlessly shined down as we jockeyed for a bit of shade. The evening celebrated the end of the first week of school though it felt like we were still in full summer-time mode. While we enjoyed refreshing beverages, the girls hung out beside the buckets of beer and wine and slurped down ice cubes.

The intensity of the sun eventually lessened and we were treated to a wonderful evening. A large buffet was set out and hundreds of people mingled about. We wanted a good feeling of community and this was a great school event.

The girls overheated a bit and the best remedy for summer heat is ice cream!
The combination of the sun setting, the awesomeness of ice cream and a steady intake of ice cubes restored the good moods of the girls. They finished dinner and were ready to play.

Kids roamed everywhere and some activities were set-up. Xian and Krista took off for the painting station and had loads of fun producing a nice piece.

Sage explored and was drawn to water and objects she could move.
