Two weeks ago we had a desert family cookout, for a ward activity. It was a lot of fun and super close. We just had to drive a little north of the freeway and there is nice desert clearing that is the perfect setting for this type of activity. We enjoyed the campfire, hamburgers and hot dogs, really yummy hot chocolate and of course dessert. We love our ward - it is really great - and we are definitely starting to feel comfortable having been here two years now!
