U.S. Vs. England & Watershed BBQ

What a great start to a fun summer day! By an epic mistake by England’s goalie
Green, the US was able to tie their first World Cup game. The ball was literally rolling at their goalie who mishandled it and watched it roll into the goal. My daughter could have easily stopped that shot... it was nuts! Emily and I had the usual crew over to watch the game - Colin, Danielle, Scott, etc... We all went pretty nuts with that goal and were happy not to see the US eliminated.

Later in the afternoon we had a soccer game (which we won) and returned to our place for a pretty fantastic bbq under a sky of stars. I love summer in Oregon, it never rains! At
first the bbq was supposed to be just our soccer team mates as Danielle had used our extra team funds to buy beer but when Kevin accidentally invited his fisheries
friends it became a typical BBQ. I called up Chris, Jason, Jen, etc and Somes and Jesse stopped by as well after they met Colin in Freddy’s buying more beer. We fired up the grill and got the fire pit going in the backyard. Kevin even set up the slip & slide for some cool fun, although I think he and Emily were the only ones who actually took a run through it. Emily’s birthday was on Friday so Danielle had brought over cupcakes for everyone to celebrate it. She
also brought Ollie over who is the cutest dog ever (besides Dromi of course). It was a really fun party and of course flip cup finished off the night.

Two more wins by our soccer team and we may actually end up finishing with a winning record! Hooray!
