The Ward Party was tonight and it went GREAT! I was a little worried in the beginning because there were only a handful of people gathered in the gym. I had ducked out to paint my toe nails red... since it was a Memorial Day BBQ and I was already wearing blue and white it just made sense to paint my toes red! Anyhow... I duck out for a minute and when I return the party attendance had tripled (at least!), this was a huge relief to me!
I ran around like a crazy person... decorating, moving tables, adding chairs, running hot off the grill burgers and dogs to the buffet table, chatting with friends and diving into the plethora of delicious desserts which where TOTALLY calling my name!
I had a wonderful time seeing people enjoying themselves and all of the wonderful food that everyone brought to partake of. Other than seeing people smile, laugh and stuff their faces my favorite part of the evening was hobbling out to my already loaded up car (thanks to a handful of people who refused I carry anything) to find a dozen or so people still hanging out on the lawn and having a good time.
This was one of the best ward activities I have had and I am so glad that everyone who attended enjoyed it just as much as I did! Thank you so much to all of those people who brought food, games, grills, helping hands or just a cute smile to help brighten the activity! It would not have been nearly as fun without you!
