Here comes again this time of the year when take advantage of the good hot sun of our island to have a great day together outside with some good friends having a table with models, and a table with good food. Last year it was a blast at Ismael Gonzales' place, I hope to offer the best in my house this year, like he did.

This is the show where anyone is a winner!

Oh the greatness of modeling...a good excuse to have a good day with friends, food, beers, wine,...look foward for some pictures.

We had a good time today.

We did this last year in my house and again today at Simon's.

The idea is simple: Meet at somebody's house with models and get BBQ food for it :(

We had Mike, Ruben, Ferdinand, Alex, Christian, Simon and me.

Simon will post more pictures later but I want to share these. Here is a link to the Fotki album: http://public.fotki.com/tatocorvette/scale...-casa-de-simon/

Here is a sample:

Finally, I had some time to share the few pictures I could took, due to I was taking care of the fire. I'm sorry for the quality of some of them since I couldn't get my tripod to the area. First of all I would like to thanks all the guys that showed up to my house like: Ismael Goanzalez, Alex Renta, Ruben Tirado, and my son Ferdinand Rivera. Like you guys can see, we had a great time in a real hot July day with over 90 grades! As you guys will see, the models were the excuse to have this get together...friendsip and food was primary!...Thanks guys!
