My 43rd Birthday
Saturday, April 13th, 2013
My parents planned their annual spring visit for my 43rd Birthday Weekend. So my wife decided to add to the celebration by throwing me a little party. Amy's Dad volunteered to bring his smoker down to BBQ a bunch of meat.

Slow cooking BBQ on the smoker is an all day activity, so Amy's Dad arrived at the crack of dawn to start setting up. I was up early as well to help my father-in-law get set up.
Several hours later, my wife Amy and my parents emerged out of bed.

Most of the morning and early afternoon was spent hanging around the smoker doing quality control as the BBQ was ready for samplin'

The rest of the guests started arriving after lunch and the party went on well into the evening. Here are a few more shots from the day.
