Chris, Amanda, Marisa, Wil, Ashlyn, and I were invited to an Easter
BBQ hosted by one of my mom's business friends at his Ranch house. The
drive to his estate was beautiful. It was such a gorgeous day, too.
When we finally got there, we were surprised to find out that the BBQ
was far from being small and intimate. There were a couple of hundred
people there! We felt like we walked in on a huge Persian family reunion.
Max and his family and friends were overwhelmingly generous and welcoming.
My sisters and I, along with the kids, enjoyed a BBQ lunch, live band,
dancing, and an Easter Egg hunt. Max's ranch is HUGE, with lots of horses,
cows, dogs, and other live-stock. After the egg hunt, Max had all the
kids line up as he handed each child a crisp new Five Dollar Bill! DAMN!...big
pimpin'! There must have been at least 50 kids there!
Pictures from today:
leaving Max's BBQ, we found shelter from the hot sun at our local Starbucks.
The kids ran to ColdStone's for ice cream.
it's the last day of this month. I can't believe how fast it flew by!
CONGRATULATIONS to Chinch and Sarai!
