After an incredible morning of worship, teaching, honoring people and lots of sweet fellowship, we packed into cars and headed out for our annual JV Family Day.
Each year we do something fun all together, as the JV family. We've had carnivals, been to circuses, had hoe-downs and luaus, sport's days and prom, been horseback riding and to the science museum.
But one of my all time favorite JV Family Days is what we did today...a trip to the Ostrava zoo!
There is something so fun about an afternoon of being able to wander in a beautiful space, enjoying lots of great conversations and time together.

Did I see many animals? Not so much! I was honestly too busy talking to notice anything but a few goats in the petting zoo, and some noisy flamingos at the entrance!
After zoo time, everyone was on their own for dinner in the city. Families with little kids made plans to be together, the singles all headed off on their own, and we joined in on a wonderful surprise 50th birthday party for Heidi Carlson!
What a special evening honoring her and sharing in lots of great conversation and time with our JV family. It was the perfect ending to JV Family Day!
