1st Annual Over The Top Picnic

Friday was the 1st Annual Over The Top Picnic. We invited all of our friends in town up to the cabin for a BBQ and bonfire (next year we’ll probably move it to Saturday and step it up with some contests).


Our turn out was small but we had a great time. It was fun to show off the cabin (and our view!) and hang out with our neighbors.
