Our first farm party

Posted on Updated on

We finally had our first farm party! We invited our small group out to the farm the other night and it was a blast!

(Some of the photos taken by our friend Craig.)

The kids loved the tire swings! And I think the parents loved pushing the kids on the tire swings!

They also loved the chickens.

So thankful for our huge yard (pasture?).

Pat then decided to get out his lawn mower tractor with the little trailer and offer some rides for the kids.

Who knew that an acreage, a lawn mower with a trailer and 15 kids would make Pat so happy! HA!

How many guys does it take to get the fire started? Obviously three since Steve is sitting back watching. : )

Right before everyone left we remembered that we had some sparklers left over from the 4th. Just enough for everyone!

What a great way to end a great night!

I don’t want to get all sappy here.

Well ok, maybe I will.

We love our small group so much!

It was really difficult when we came back to the Lord, to open ourselves up like that.

But God has provided the most amazing people to be the hands and feet of Jesus to us, and they have become the most wonderful of friends.

We are so very grateful!
