Did Someone Say Pool Party?
Living in Los Cabos for as long as we have, we locals find ways to keep entertained during the hot and sticky summer weekends – fortunately, we all have at least one friend with the perfect pool to host a BBQ!
We are not just colleagues meeting in our office Monday to Friday; most of us are old friends and have known each other for many years. So, when the summer season arrives, we like to get together, kick-back, have some drinks, share delicious food and cool off in the pool. Any pool!
This year our esteemed colleague and dear friend Janet Jensen hosted us at her home for our annual ‘Pool Party and BBQ’. What a blast! It’s not only awesome to see how our team has grown over the last few years, it’s also great to chat with the new additions outside of the office environment. As tradition dictates, we each bring food and drinks to share “pot-luck” style. No one says it out loud, but it is always a competition to see who brings the tastiest dish. Everything is game; from salads, meats, fresh seafood, desserts, vegetarian, vegan, even gluten free! You name it, we have it. But there is one unspoken rule; whatever you bring must be homemade (or at least be very well disguised…). We love cooking together and finding out more about our personal lives as it is all-too-easy to get caught up in work-related topics that side-line just being friends. Let’s hope she invites us back next year!
For that one Saturday in August we lock up all our pending tasks in the office and put our phones on mute. Sorry if I missed your call, I was at a pool party!
