Saturday Bliss

Saturday Bill and I spent a perfect day together and then went over his parents home for a pizza party.

  Now, I know you are thinking that isn't a big deal, it's just a pizza party right? If that thought crossed your mind, you clearly haven't been to one of the Roger's family pizza parties!  Bill's dad (also named Bill), makes everything from scratch.  It really is an experience.  He makes his own sauce and his own dough and he has a method to his madness that produces a delicious and memorable evening.  He makes a pizza and everyone takes a piece as they come off the grill (that's right... he grills them!).  We eat as they are ready and socialize and laugh and talk and catch up and pour drinks and it is SO fantastic. 

Caesar Salad Pizza is a group favorite and usually quickly dissappears!
Spending time with Bill's family is always a treat.  They are open to anyone and so welcoming and generous.  I love that we are all happy with a drink in our hand, food in front of us, and each other's company and no one needs anything else. They are a blessing to me and teach me about love and life.  This week was especially important because Mikaela came and met these people that are so dear to me. Evenings at the Rogers Family Casa are my favorite!

My appletini as I watched over Spoon in the backyard.
Bill and I brought Spoon so everyone could meet him, and his gradnma's puppy, Joy, came as well.  We left Spoon in his pen, but they were nose to nose a few times, and Joy desperately wanted to play.  Her tail wagged back and forth in extreme excitement.  It was so great to see my bunny in the grass playing with another animal. 

What a perfect evening this was!  The weather was gorgeous, the company was wonderful, and the food and the drinks were delicious.  What more could a girl want?
