This is my favorite time of year on Lake Tapps, when families are out boating and tubing, the days are long, and neighbors regularly host backyard barbecues and hire live bands for entertainment. This weekend, our neighbors celebrated getting married by hiring a local classic rock /n roll band and lining their entire property with candle luminaries. It was fun to watch them set up and enjoy their yard.
Ironically, we headed out to our friends’ backyard wedding reception in Kirkland just after our neighbors’ party started. Past clients of mine got married in Hawaii in June, and then hosted a reception on Saturday in the backyard of their new home. This photo is of their downstairs bar in the new digs – isn’t it awesome? We loved how they had the party catered – with a burger truck! Just like you’d imagin a taco truck, it drove up into their RV parking alongside the backyard and they served delicious salmon burgers, black bean burgers, and regular burgers on ciabatta rolls with sweet potato fries. It was delicious, and so much fun to hang out in the backyard, complete with campfire and great tunes.
