Today was jam packed, but a little more relaxing. We did wish board and had various group talks. My favorite part was the bird show. And the best part was the tie dye. All the families had so so so much fun. Then the families and volunteers had free time and we ended the night with the family game night. Some won awesome prizes at Bingo while some rocked the mike at karaoke. There was an intense UNO battle and Wii games going on. We even got a little twisted up with Twister.

I had an amazing time on the retreat and hope I have the opportunity to do it again. The volunteers, coordinators, staff and families are all amazing. I hope all the bonds and friendships made over the weekend are lasting
