This Sunday we had a cookout at my parent's house. When I was a kid, we used to do this every couple of months. It is one of my favorite memories of childhood. The family was really big then. Now, people have passed away, gone to differnet states, and just plain don't want to hang out anymore.
My Mom has been a little down, so I suggested a cookout. It was my family, my parents, and my cousin Ricki's family. We had a lot of fun. It is something we should do more often.
