Food and Friends

The past couple weeks or so we have spent visiting with friends, and having friends visit us. Lots of backyard snacking, iced coffees, shopping, and cold beer. Yesterday, we squeezed in a visit to my good friend's new apartment while dropping off some shop orders in L.A. We ate at Millie's in Silver Lake (which, was delicious, but tested the limits of three very exhausted little boys. And proved, that in spite of enormous burgers and quarter machine candy treats, dining out, at this point anyway, is still usually more work than it's worth) But sometimes we like to remind ourselves of the fact.  

Today we are packing up and heading out, back down to the beach for our regular stint on the sand for the holiday tomorrow. Come nap time I will be busily slicing watermelon and gathering all the fixing for a simple bbq. I love the 4th of July. I look forward to it all year long and can't believe it's already here again. Summer, slow it down a little, will 'ya?

Have a good one,


  1. Looks like fun (and testing the waters to go out with little ones had me cracking up! We never really had an issue with it but I'm positive it's because we only had one lil one at a time!!! :D Happy 4th- have fun at the beach!

  2. I see lots of yummy burgers and happy kids! Could there be anything better?! :)

  3. great shots! looks like good times and yummy food :D

    see ya tomorrow!

  4. Oh lord knows we like to remind ourselves of how hard it is to eat out with three tired little boys! But that food looks amazing- perfect July fare! Happy 4th to you!

  5. Wow. The picture with the fries and the burgers + coke, the whole setting made me soooo hungry. Better than those styled foodblogs out there. I could use a burger right now!
