Ellie's Flower - Filled BBQ

Yesterday was a weather for BBQ's. I say yesterday but when this is posted I'll be on holiday - good planning, eh?

It just so happened on that day Ellie was hosting one in her garden. Her mum kindly cooked the meat whilst we caught up with each other & explored her flower-filled garden (it really is so pretty).



Being a vegetarian at a BBQ isn't ideal, but I was pretty happy to find there was pizza instead, mmmm.

The table was filled with tasty delights (including my hummus!)


The games then commenced. Spoons was a definite favourite. If you've never heard of it, here you can find how to play it.

It gets exciting when you use forks instead of spoons....



For the rest of the afternoon we played frisbee and sat on the grass eating ice creams, discussing our summers & the birth of the new royal.

Oh and did I mention she kept chickens? Pretty cool pet, I know.
