Everywhere you look, you're among friends and neighbors. I just love that! Casino, beer tent, kids games, nickel pitch, fresh grilled sandwiches and corn and Bingo! Katie and one of her bff's, Brendan worked in the kiddie game tent...
Riley ran in the 5k for Haiti on Saturday morning...a mere warm up for the upcoming week's 2-a-day practices for football!
About 3 years ago, i attended a church women's retreat and in a short period of time, became very close with the group of women that i attended it with. We try to meet once a month for breakfast, for occasional gatherings and always volunteer to work the BINGO tent together. i Love my girls.
Mark and I took turns working and walking around with Griffin and his bff, Thomas. I actually really hate those carnival rides; they make me a nervous wreck. But, i know it's a draw for the kids and we let him ride a few of the less lethal-looking rides.
Despite the motion sickness, a fun time was had by all. The church raised money for our youth ministries, Haiti ministry and other causes close to our hearts. And even though it's arrival every year signals the winding down of summer vacation (school is one week away), it's an event we always look forward to with great anticipation!
