Happy ‘merica Day!
We here with LST decided to celebrate with bacon, water balloons, bacon, kiddie pool, bacon, puppies, and more bacon.
Seriously. We had a bacon themed picnic!!! It stemmed from this conversation (paraphrased…obviously):
Kenneth & I: Bacon is so awesome, PUT IT ON EVERYTHING!
Michael: It’s not good on everything.
Kenneth & I: Name one thing it wouldn’t be good on.
Kenneth & I: Challenge accepted.
So we headed to the Hatchery today to celebrate being ‘merican. It was SO FUN. Wish I’d gotten more pictures, but I was busy playing with the water balloons and puppies. Shari was the one with the camera!
We had waaaaay too much fun with a water balloon sling shot. Check out this video we made on Instagram.

Now onto the food. Sit tight.
And everyone gets an award because I love awards. Sadly, I definitely missed pictures of a few dishes. Sorry if it was yours!! But everything was SO GOOD. Seriously, I didn’t try anything that made me go, “meh”. I loved it all!!! I LOVE BACON!!!!
It’s not a problem.

The Bacon Explosion (by Kevin)
Bacon and sausage wrapped in bacon, smoked, and smothered in BBQ sauce. Don’t fret, I linked it so you could either a) make it yourself or b) see that I’m not lying and it’s a real thing.
