It was a gorgeous day for a cook out.   The temperature was in the 70's with sunshine and a gentle breeze.

I invited my folks to join us after Church.    They brought fresh sweet corn.  
Hubby grilled the steaks.  (He did a wonderful job.)  We had baked potatoes,  sliced tomatoes from the garden, creamy coleslaw, cantaloupe and  garlic bread.   To finish things off there was homemade coconut cream pie.

The beauty of the day enfolded us.   We laughed and spoke of past times and future plans.   Dick and I shared about watching the sunset the previous evening and catching site of cedar wax wings.  Mom and Dad talked about places they had traveled and where they would like to go.   Yellowstone National Park is one.   Dick had been there as a boy.   He  recalled camping and the fun he had with his family.

The time passed far too quickly.

It was a lovely Sunday afternoon.   A precious page for my memory.   I like to store those pages up in my mind.  They will stay with me and keep me warm when winter comes.

Hope you are blessed with a special page today!  So glad you stopped to visit.
