4th of July, Part 2

I never finished the rest of our 4th of July fun. We enjoyed a great time with people from Shawn's Department at a BBQ at one of his professor's home. It was so much fun, and the food was so yummy. I was excited because there was a point in the afternoon, where I had everyone's attention (probably 10-12 people) as I was explaining about my parents and their mission in Russia. People had questions and wanted to know why they would serve. It was a great missionary opportunity and fun to be excited for my parents. Why would my mom and dad go to Russia for 2-3 years? E-mail me and I will tell you more!

I decided to be patriotic and took a fruit pizza for the BBQ. It was really yummy and everyone enjoyed!
When we got home - the elder's joined us for the evening. Athen's is pretty much dead during the summer - so there weren't any real celebrations. We had sub sandwhiches, chips, soda, and icecream bars for the Elder's. I think they enjoyed. We then played Carcassone and Mormon Bridge and had a fun time!
Then on Monday we were actually scheduled to feed the Elder's. It was a first to make ribs, we don't have a BBQ grill - so we just put them in the oven and then broiled them for the last 15 minutes. They were DELICIOUS!!! Thanks to my brother Jared for the good recipe. It have a feeling these will become a regular on our menu. We also had corn on the cob, rolls, salad and homemade banana-berry ice cream.It was a perfect ending to a fun weekend!
