Indy 500 FHE Party

Start Your Engines!! Zion and Melinda's annual Indy 500 Party was a hit. Mark, LeeAnn, Erica, Larry, Jamilah and Brian --these pics are for you. We missed you!!
The kids played in the backyard on the water slide...
The girls played many rounds of "Golf" before letting the boys join in the fun...
Garth explaining to the kids the proper water slide etiquette...
Jess cooked!
The guys watching the game - I should have panned around and gotten the other guys too. Opps!
Angie brought lots of yummy cherries.
And there was plenty of meat. "The Steaks of Zion" grill was in full swing. Zion BBQ'd up 9 rib eyes, 2 racks of ribs, chicken and hot dogs. Mikey got the meat sweats.


Sweet Emma. Isn't she adorable?

The boys with their Indy car suckers - homemade by Melinda. Caleb is wearing his Scott Dixon T-shirt and rooted for him during the race.



Good food, great race and the best of friends...it was a priceless day! We are so grateful to have such wonderful people in our lives. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. Jeff and Jess had us all rolling with their "sweaty" story and Riley was a crack up when she told us all that "she loves Jesus but church is boring." Emma walked around the backyard singing "I Like To Look For Rainbows" to herself. I took a "bullet" in the right buttock from Garth's air soft gun. All the little boys formed a no-girls club and at one point had the girls surrounded with all their nerf weapons. The girls told Melinda and she helped them get weapons of their own :). Some of the men took Jessica's cell phone when she left the room and took about 50 pictures of random things...they thought they were hilarious! The kids are all growing up so fast. The Adam's youngest is going into first grade in the fall, Asher is walking all over the place, Logan is such a good baby he eats, sleeps a lot and jabbers while he plays. The best part is that we are all trying to plan a summer camp-out just like in the good ol' days.
