Pink flamingos in the front yard? Underwear hanging on the clothes line? But, of course! What could be more appropriate a "send off" for our friends Eric and Kate (see below) who are moving to Ohio than a very Improper, White Trash Barbecue.

Here's hubby after a long, hot few hours at the grill. . . kickin' it.

If we had done a prize for "best dressed," I would have had to given it to Kate. . .

And Kat who has already done justice to the great event in her blog (nice belted leopard top, chica!)

Sophie wins for most photogenic of the evening. . .

This pic of Lance is a little fuzzy but way to good NOT to post. . . and YES, I actually ate that hotdog. Why did I choose the completely black one, you ask? That's what a good hostess does, takes the worst one to leave the only slightly crispy hotdogs for her guests.

Lucy enjoyed the rare moment where we actually LET her make a mess.

A few of the fine dishes on the buffet table.

Macey and Lisa in matching tube tops. . . WOW.

I'm pretty sure Analeis wants to beat me up for taking this photo. . .

And I KNOW her daughter, Lyla, wants to slug me too.

Anyhow, some fun pics from a fun night. . .

I wish these came in poster size!

A fantastic series of greeting cards featuring Monsieur Boudin, a dapper little dachsund from Paris. . . and if they did come larger I'd hang them all over Lu's room! I also wish they were available for purchase in the US, darnit! I guess I'll just have to enjoy them over the world wide web for a while. From the very creative creatives at Lab Partners.
