Fun Sunday

What a fun Sunday yesterday was. Well, that is after the nasty thunderstorm that roared through again first thing in the morning. Nothing like 70 mph winds and pounding rain to get a person out of bed in a hurry on a Sunday morning! Nevertheless...

Our church, Crossroads Community Church in Freeport hosted it's first annual Dad's Day Motor Show to honor our fathers. If it had a motor, you could bring it and display it. We had 43 entrants. Not bad for the first year. We had a little bit of everything. Classic cars, drag cars, trucks, tractors, and motorcycles.
Dan & I were in charge of the food for the event. We grilled 530 burgers, brats & hot dogs and had root beer by the keg to make root beer floats. Yum!

We were blessed with a wonderful group of volunteers who helped grill and serve. It was a great day, but I can definitely tell I have a job that causes me to sit on my backside most of the day. My feet aren't used to that kind of workout. Can you say blisters??? All in all, the event was a great success and will more than likely be bigger and better next year. Ya'll come!


  1. What a fun idea! I'm not sure how much of a Father's Day it was for your DH cooking all day but if he's anything like mine I bet he loved it! Blessings,

  2. That looks like a fun place to be, Lori!!
    I love muscle cars... my dream is to own a 69 camaro or firebird!!
