Smokin' Hot Butts & Racks

Luke and I joined Courtney, Greg and Avery at the Bikes, Boogie and BBQ festival in Gastonia last weekend. Greg and his team, "Smokin' Hot Butts & Racks" entered the competition in all four categories: chicken, ribs, pulled pork and brisket. It was their second competition and unfortunately they didn't place, although their brisket was the best I've ever tasted! Despite the loss, the festival was a lot of fun and there was plenty of good people watching to be had. Luke had a great time sitting up in his stroller like a big boy and even took a 1 hour nap in the middle of the live music, generators and fans, so Mama got to relax enjoy some cold adult beverages. It was a great day!

There were over 500 bikes at the festival:

Sitting up like a big boy, Luke's new favorite thing!

Mom, why did you put this ridiculously large hat on my head? I don't think it's working for me.

There, now that's better!

Luke's girlfriend Avery:

Thanks Heather! I wish I could say he got them from me, but so far the only thing of mine he has is dimples. He looks just like his Daddy!

I can't believe how big Avery is now! And Luke is growing like crazy! I'm glad you all had a good time and got yourselves in front of the camera for once. :)
