This is Twelfth in a series of 50 posts we are putting out throughout the years in anticipation of the celebration of our 50th Anniversary in 2015. We welcome your feedback and suggestions for the top things YOU love about Minnesota as well!
Can you believe summer is almost half over! Has it even started?!?!
Well I can tell you if there is one thing Minnesotans love its BBQ season! Being cooped up for long periods in the winter makes our mouths water for watermelon and BBQ’d meats grilled outside! If you ask any true blooded northerner they will give you this same response. We take full advantage of this time of year. We jump outside with family and friends and enjoy what this beautiful state has to offer.
Now we don’t just have BBQ’s, we have elaborate affairs; it’s almost amusement like! When the weather warms up our plumb-full garages spew every sort of gizmo and gadget known to man that relates to the BBQ season, including our trusty grills! Bean bag toss, hangie ball golf, horseshoes, sidewalk chalk, moveable fire pits, water balloon launchers, tiki torches, campfire pie makers – we have stuff for anything you need or want to do outdoors!
Recently our Faz family set out to enjoy this beautiful time of year together with our own back yard BBQ (OK it was in our parking lot, but we have a great parking lot). Just like any other Minnesota family we gathered together for some grilled foods and brought out all kinds of fun toys. The kids played ball and drew on the sidewalks with chalk. The adults played bean bag toss, enjoyed some much deserved libations, and mingled about enjoying the beautiful weather.
We hope you’re able to get outside this summer and enjoy some beautiful weather. We sure are! Feel free to post some fun pictures of your outside events on our Facebook page; we love to share our stories!
Below are some photos from our recent event.
