jh family beach retreat...

oh so much fun!
Every summer on Memorial Day weekend, the Jr High Families at Mayfair retreat off to the Gulf Shores of Alabama. It is one of my favorite things we do in the summer. 

Why is it such a favorite?
It is at the beach.
Our Jr High kids are so much fun.
This retreat is a lot more laid back.
It is a great time to not just get to know kids better, but to get to know their families as well.
And because the parents are there, they are the ones responsible for their kids, so we get to only focus on the spiritual and fun! 
How could it get any better than this?!

This year was no exception. We had such a great time, and the weather ended up being awesome. It rained the entire first night and first morning, but then all of a sudden, around 10:30 that morning, it all went away and we had clear skies and sunshine! (Definitely a God thing.)

So here are just a few pictures from our incredible retreat.
I hope all of you had a beautiful Memorial Day weekend!
