Family and Friends For Fun BBQ 2011

We co-run our youth group at church, and have happily declared it to be named Family &Friends For Fun! Why? Well, because we are friends, we are family and we want to have fun!

Since the weather has been so nice lately we decided that we would have a barbecue at a local splash park. Sadly upon arrival we were notified that the fountains were broken, and they didn't think they would be fixing them this summer. That was a major drag, but not ones to give up we just played a fun game of kick ball instead.

We broke up into two teams and played against each other. No one really kept score, and it was great to show the kids that you can have fun without the pressure of being a "winner".

Of course there was awesome food, and everyone ate until we were bursting at the seams. Delicious burgers, hot dogs, potato salad, macaroni salad, chips, veggies, brownies and cookies! Yum!

  1. Your post reminded me of when I was in grammar school. A bunch of us were going to meet in the field next to the school and play football the next day. Only two of us showed up, and no ball. The other guy was a sports freak, we played "imaginary" football for a couple of hours. We had more fun that day than ever.

    Thanks for reminding me.
