Since the party started.......

Mike and I started our own little party outside on Fathers day.
I made his favorite meal, and afterwords we decided to head outdoors.
 WOWZA, what a party it is so far.  This party by the end of the week will have hundreds and hundreds of links.
Here is the line up for the rest of the week.
You MAY link up here or go visit any one of these blogs when their party starts and link up there as well.
Mike chillin!

Kim is next up for outdoor patios and deck.
Well seeing I shared my day time summer deck, I thought I would share our evening party deck.
I never took evening pictures, so I thought I would try my hand at that.
LOTS of trial and error.
My bad, I had to bring the laptop outside, so I could start to blog hop.  Mike understood, and we still were able to chit chat.  If I left you a comment and there were typo's that is why...
not good at multi- tasking anymore.
Getting the tiki's going.  Believe it or not we do NOT have a huge mosquito problem back here.
In fact, never get bit, I guess they do not like me!
Fire is cooking now...
Outdoor speaker for some tunes!
Roo is looking all Relic.
Taking night time photos is practice..I have a long way to go.

And this is the patio by night....
and by Day...
 Some of you gals asked me about this rug.
It is suppose to be for outdoors and I bought it at Walmart (Better Home and gardens collection), However, it went back the next day.  It retains way too much moisture and I could see it would be a problem with rain and dampness. SIGH...it really is pretty if  you have an enclosed room.

I'd say you did pretty darned good at taking night photos. Everything is ultimately more romantic at night, isn't it? Love it..but it is too bad about the rug! xo Diana

How pretty it looks and I think your night time pics are great...much better than I could do! I really had big plans to get my act together and start our headboard but so far, it hasn't happened and I think my in-laws are coming down this week so...back burner:( I do plan on visiting all the fun links though!

Love your nighttime deck. So pretty. We don't have a mosquito problem either thank goodness. I think the bats keep them at bay here.

I love the fire pit area. I can see the kids making smores down there. Too bad about the rug. I had been looking at those, so now I know to skip it. Your whole backyard area looks awesome!

I'm coming right over. You look already for me to visit. Great tiki torches for the skeeters. A fire pit to keep us toastie. A laptop to keep us blog savvy. What more could one ask for.

Hey, at least the rug made a post before heading back to Wally World. It did look to nice for outdoors. But glad it popped by for a photo opt...

What kind of laptop do you have that has that oversized monitor and (I'm guessing) full sized keyboard? How cool!
