LST’s Big Boomin’ Bacon Bash for ‘Merica!

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.
Michael: Cheesecake.
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!

This is Kenneth’s face tasting his bacon cheesecake for the first time.  The other photos were a little too foodgasmic and weren’t appropriate to be posting on the internet.  😉

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.

Shut up.
