The Busy Night Report

We had a great time tonight- playing games, eating hot dogs, and enjoying face painting and balloon animals at the first Family Fun night.  The Washington Plaza church volunteers were out in full force and lead the event amazingly along with help with the TLC Children's Center-- such great folks! Thanks to Eve Thompson, of Friends of Lake Anne for pulling us all together on this. I love the partnerships that are being created.

Some shots from the evening:

Twister was a bit hit- who knew a older game could be revived again? Mary and Nancy look on.

A shot of Barbara with some kids. The duck pond game was great for the smaller ones who loved getting wet as they played.

Even the pastor gets in on the group dance time. I mean, how can you not like the "hookey pokey" and the "electric slide?"

Family Fun Night 017

For those who were able to come inside, they enjoyed a treat from the local group: Somos el Mar. Their presentation was full of all sorts of folk music and even some interesting props, things you wouldn't expect to see in a church (I'll explain more later).

All in all- great night. In review, a night we have much to celebrate and continue on with! If you missed out on the fun- no worries, we'll be doing this again on the 3rd Friday of both July and August!
