Youth cookout at the Monfreda's

I've mentioned before that Justin is stepping down as youth leader as he & his family are going to Uganda next year. The Monfreda's are going to be interim youth group head leaders until we find a new youth leader. So tonight we had a cookout at their house. It was a lot of fun!

Conversations are better than watching.
We had a great time at Mike & Mary's! I think it will be something the kids will want to repeat every year!! According to reports, it took an average of 3 shampoos to get all the potatoes out of hair! I think Mary will be cleaning potatoes out of her house for weeks!
Glad you stuck around & looked at all my pics!
