Thank Goodness it's Fall!

We hosted what we hope will be the first of many annual Chili Parties this weekend.

Unfortunately, I forgot to pull out my camera and take pictures. BUT! I sought to recreate the evening with the help of a friend and his favorite sweatshirt.

We had lots of kids at the party.

They shot hoops

Played Playstation

Rode bikes

and played hide and seek.

The grown ups were thrilled with the chili and other refreshments

and games. This guy was just one of the many victims of a Steaming Reno.

A couple dudes couldn't pass up a chance to do some gaming.

There was some action on the upper deck

and by the fire

The keg was well guarded.

Despite the presence of a full moon.

Towards the end of the evening a few revelers got a little carried away

but don't we all.

In the end, no matter how you toss it

it was a good dump.

Thanks guys! I only wish I would've got pictures of the vat o' chili and the "offensive" t-shirt.

I'm really glad you came.

(Jen...when did you leave?? Was R fed up with all the harassment??)

Heheheh! Great re-creation of the evening's festivities! And here I thought Mr. Skeleton was a lame guest. That'll teach me!
