Memorial Day Weekend!

The official/unofficial start to summer.  Weather-wise it was a bit hit or miss.  Friday was gorgeous on the train and Monday was cool but mostly sunny.  We won't talk about BBQ-ing in the rain on Sunday!

In between showers, we managed to get a few hours of yard work in (okay....Brian did most of the hard labor).  Home Depot had more than enough flowers to choose from and we even added a yellow pear tomato plant to the garden.  

I trimmed back the roses which are already producing some beautiful blooms, already!

BBQ Pork ribs with Tom Douglas Rub for Sunday dinner!  We hosted Bay Area friend, Jenny and her son Carter on Sunday.  The boys played wiffel ball and frisbee in the drizzle and Jenny and I sipped on wine!

In addition to the ribs, grilled burgers, Brian's baked beans and corn-on-the-cob, I also found this wonderful Herbed Potato Salad out of May's Relish newspaper insert.  

How did you spend the holiday weekend?
