Seems we picked a perfect weekend for a retreat! Not only were we totally snowed in in the middle of nowhere, but it turns out that Fanning the Flame (it’s a big event for my church and our sister churches that was scheduled for the 23rd) was postponed! I’m sure others were dissapointed or put out, but for Bottom Line this was a reason to celebrate! We don’t have to miss it after all! Hooray!!
Also, I replaced my camera on Friday, so I can go back to letting pictures write blog entries for me.
For instance, look at this picture of Kim and I! We’re girls! We like each other! We’re smiling!:
We also played The Family Game, always fun. I thought I might win as Jack Kerouac, but Foxx took home the prize when she revealed that she was Skeletor, the name we’d all forgotten. Matt, Ben, and Leon formed an early family (I got to join Team Boys shortly after this picture was taken):
and Keith and Lorena formed their own neat little family. Aww, so happy. That is until Team Boys took them down several minutes later:
Seth organized two games for which we needed to be blindfolded. See? Blindfolds:
And then we ate a ridiculous amount of food (beef jerky, cheese, ice cream). Pictures of us eating (five of probably 80):
Amber mistook Keith’s neck for his mouth here:
We sang karaoke too. Here is Anna and I singing Ton Loc’s Funky Comadina before we realized how innappropriate the lyrics are (a scene from Arrested Development comes to mind…):
There was some sort of noodle fiasco:
And a spoon fight (that thing got bent good):
Unfortunately I didn’t get any pictures of the cars up to the doors with snow. We had to stick around the cabin for longer than we’d planned on Sunday so that the owner of the cabin could drive down and help us get our cars out. We didn’t have a plow, so he just drove over the snow with his truck until it was flattened enough for us to push our cars out. I don’t know what I was thinking in not taking any pictures of this.
Leon made a snow angel though, didn’t miss that:
And just for good measure, here is a creepy picture of Keith looking like he is being born out of a piece of bacon:
