Back to the BBQ Festival

Some days, you just don’t want to cook. Luckily, some days, the Safeway BBQ Festival is going on downtown. It had been a few years since we were last here. Najwa was itty bitty and didn’t take too well to the heat. She’s older now so maybe it’ll become an annual event for us.


And what does Spam have to do with BBQ?


We know what Rolaids has to do with BBQ.


Najwa may have to give it a few years to get the ball into the holes.


I still remember Nduku and my first time to the BBQ Festival, the first time we made a run to the port-a-potties. It was both ladies going to the bathroom at the same time, when Nduku was still carrying Najwa. Seeing them headed to the port-a-potties, holding hands, makes you realize how fast time flies.
