Father/Son BBQ

Today Karston and I went to our first Father/Son BBQ together. Our church put it on out on a farm owned by the Schillings. It's a perfect setting for outdoor events. I love getting time away with one of my children to do something special. Whether it's a "kid date" or a group thing with other families like today, it is so good for the soul to have that kind of time together. Many of my best memories are with my children out with some one-on-one time.

When I heard about the father/son BBQ the men's ministry was putting on I immediately texted a few friends and told them we all needed to go.

The weather forecast called for rain, but the sun was beaming and it was pretty warm. The Schilling's farm was the perfect spot for this event. They have an amphitheater with a fire pit for s'mores, a patio outside of the barn for making and eating food and a great grassy area to play all sorts of games in. The whole place is framed by corn fields and they are in "full bloom" currently, so it was a beautiful backdrop!

We played some horse shoes, bocce ball, volley ball, blong ball and another fun "sport." I think perhaps it's best just to let you see the final 2 activities we did.
