So many cups. Colourful garden, waiting for the dark to come, little lights every where. Such a lovely and warm evening. 

Neighbours walked by and chatted, children obviously tired had to rest themselves, too. 

But then the skies went very gloomy, and all around us was thunder and lightning, coming from the mountains, creating the most amazing light show.... So we had to move our BBQ. 
Every body running as the rains started, lifting tables, food and all the plates and cups. 

Sitting snug and protected under the church roof made the evening even better. A bit of rain and a lot of thunder was not going to spoil our evening. 

Thank you for the great evening, and meeting some wonderful new people was such a bonus!

This Weekend we are going to Barcelona, Spain, to watch the World Cup final!
( shopping for me, as I don't care much for football... :)
Wishing you a great weekend!
