I'm a bit behind, but I have not forgotten. We had our Country Lovin' Kids fun last week. What an event! I had a good friend try to count people. She said it was well above 50 people, but the little people kept moving, so she lost count. Reminds me of trying to count our baby chicks. Impossible
To see last year's event, when we raised money and toys for "Bags of Love" to help foster kids, click here: 2013
Lots different from last year, but lots the same. Different games, different treats, different décor, different friends (some of the same too!) and a different charity. But that which was the same is the core of this type of get together. Outside. Simple play. Animals. Fresh air. Wagon rides. Running. Picking flowers. New friends. Strolls through the field. Laughing. Being a kid. Dessert. (Okay, so maybe that last one is my personal focus).
We were so pleased to have old friends and new friends join us. Friends from afar, friends close by too. Big kids, little kids. All with smiles, eager to have fun. And perfect weather with 0% chance of rain. That was a bonus.
Best part? My Adrian wanted to help get chickens for people who want chickens, but can't buy them. Friends who came helped us raise $175.00! All that money will help people in 3rd world countries start a livelihood of chickens.
I took a pictures of the before.

Thankful for the kind hearts who donated.
There's just the four of us, but with friends like you helping, we can do big things. Thanks for coming locals, and for the words of encouragement from those unable/too far away to come.
