Ladies Retreat

A few weeks ago the ladies from Central Church of Christ loaded up their cars and the church van (lovingly nicknamed "the marshmallow") and headed to Smith Lake for a weekend Ladies Retreat. We had the most gorgeous home that we rented through VRBO. I love VRBO.

We had a great speaker, did a fun and cute craft and enjoyed some great food. One of the points that our speaker gave during one of her talks was that we needed to get to know each others story. We did a lot of getting to know each others story. We had a wide range of "women". I say it this way because we had "women" from middle school to in their 70s. I think it was so good for us to get to know each other and to do a lot of laughing and crying together. Us older ladies were so honored that the younger women were willing to spend time with us. The weekend was a great success and I can't wait for us to do it again!

John came up before everybody arrived and cooked the chicken for our supper and then quietly slipped out the door and went home. Thanks, Baby!

This beautiful lab took to John the minute we got there. It wanted to play and kept carrying this piece of firewood around begging John to play fetch.

The same lab talked us into playing fetch while we were on the pier.

The fire pit. We made smores!
