Our Journey Raising Two Children with Special Needs

This blog chronicles our life raising two children, Nicholas 14, diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome and Weston 17, diagnosed with Autism/Asperger's/ADHD. It's the ups, the downs, the joys, the sorrows and most importantly, the beauty of living a life less perfect, a life more meaningful.

Barbecue'n Cook-off...Man Style

Another lovely weekend in New England, so the men decided to grill outside on the deck.

Dad fired up the gas grill.


Nicholas fired up the playskool grill



And it was a barbecue'n cook off........man style!

I bought this grill for Nicholas several years ago and surprisingly it still works, It makes sizzling sounds like a real grill and the plastic coals glow red.....just like Dad's. I placed it on my empty plant stand. It was just the perfect height for our Chef Emeril-in-training

Muffy, of course, supervised the entire event. Poised to pounce on the first sign of an errant crumb.


Weston joined the crowd.....



And it was time to enjoy the rewards of summer's first barbecues.

Come grab a chair!

Then of course, it's time for...

Chillin' after all that grillin'!
