Nate and I decided that having a BBQ on Memorial Day was a must. We lucked out and actually found a picnic spot (the parks were SOOO busy), dodged the rain, and when Nate got paged an hour before the BBQ, we found someone to cover for him. We had some awesome food: BBQed pineapple, homemade ice cream, cream soda, yummy salads, etc. The subject of birds came up a few times...including Nate being called "The Bird Whisperer" and being asked if he had brought his "bird goggles." (She meant binoculars. I think I like bird goggles better!)
Love at first sight.
