...and our new calling is...

We recently were called to the activities committee in our college married ward and tonight was our first activity. We pulled it all together more "last-minute" than I would have liked it to be (i LOVE to plan out all the details, right down to who is going to bring the camera to document it all.) We decided to do a barbecue at Vernon Werthen Park with waterballoon volleyball, and a specialty dish competition. We divided it into 3 categories: best salad, best side-dish, and best dessert; with the winners getting a gift card to various restaurants- I'm jealous of the 25 Main winner...

It was such a success! A storm blew in and it was freezing earlier today and I was so afraid that no one would come, but the sun came out and the weather could not have been more perfect. The dishes were so much fun- (so different!) and I thoroughly enjoyed playing waterballoon volleyball and badmitten? Ok, spell-checker, help me out here... Badminton. We had a the perfect sized crowd and I am so grateful to everyone that helped out.

The only thing that could have been better is if I would have remembered that I'm the one I assigned to take the pictures. I brought the camera, but I was having so much fun that I forgot to document it.
