A short winter get-a-way

This weekend the four of us headed to northern Minnesota for a winter retreat with Mill City Church. Our car was packed to the top when we pulled out of our driveway on Friday for our little adventure. It was a cold weekend...the thermostat read -9 when we left the camp to return home today. The kids were troopers. We slept little, laughed a lot, worshiped, ate and played together. We're all exhausted, but so grateful to have such fun memories of our first church retreat as a family. There were 13 children under the age of 3 on the retreat! Ryan and I look forward to many more family retreats together in the future (hopefully minus the pack-n-plays, diapers and middle of the night wakenings :). They took pictures of everyone who attended and here's the good ones (and the not-so-good-ones) of our fam.

Family church retreats are a treasure. A lot of work, but also a treasure. And they do get easier...I promise. Love the pictures, especially the one of Samuel making Ryan smile - precious!
