At Brisco's birthday party, we discovered that he is a major fan of the Motley Que barbeque pork. When the Motley Que Crew entered the 2011 Auburn Hills Barbeque Cook-Off, we were so thrilled to be invited to hang at their tent! It was the state championship barbeque cook-off!
Dom joined Brisco at the event.
They had a blast.
The food was more than amazing. It was award-winning!
Brisco posed with Zach and his mom.
Below (on the right) is Zach's dad, Mr. Z, a.k.a. Mikey Z. He is a key member of the Motley Que Crew.
It was victory, after victory at the award's ceremony.
2nd place: Chicken
9th place: Ribs
1st place: Pork
(Even though pork is his favorite, Brisco was a little startled by the loud applause.)
1st place: Brisket
Overall: 1st place!!!
That's right: The Motley Que Crew were the 2011 Grand Champions!
Mr. and Mrs. Z and their teammates.
Look at all of those trophies!
And they qualified for the national championship!
Zach was especially proud of his dad
(and mom...she puts in lots of work, too)! :)
That same day, we celebrated Aunt Joann's 60th birthday.
We had a lovely dinner and played a family favorite: Bocce Ball!
Brisco transitioned into his second party outfit.
It was a long, fun day! Brisco was trooper! He loved helping his daddy collect the heavy Bocce balls.
We highly recommend Palazzo di Bocce in Auburn Hills. The food was delicious, and the Bocce ball courts were in excellent condition. It was a nice, clean, family-friendly party place. Great job, Uncle Gil, Dria, and Brittnie. It was the perfect way to honor your mom on her special day!
