Just this past weekend was our 4th annual Family Sledding and Potluck. It took place on a cold night with temperatures barley reaching above zero, As families started to arrive at 5pm with sleds in tow, food in their hands and a smile on their face you could tell it was going to be a great event, and it was!
Inside the building there was a buffet of warm food, tables filled with people catching up on life, and a bounce house that was never empty. Outside the stars were out, the fire was crackling and when you looked at the sledding hill you saw head lamps bouncing up and down and heard shills of laughter :) With over 50 people in attendance (babies, brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, parents and friends) there was no shortage of fun being had.
Around 7:30pm while everyone was packing up their little ones to head home for bed I overhead a parent say "this was the perfect night"... I couldn't have said it better myself. Thank you to everyone for filling my heart with so much LOVE for this amazing community that we have here. I am already looking forward to our next get together :)
