Our first Co-community Spring Festival on May 31, 2003 was a HUGE success!!  We had over 80 adults and over 30 kids & teens.  In spite of threatening weather (and an afternoon thunderstorm) everyone had a great time.  There was great food (courtesy of Sean McCormick and all the pot-luck contributors), music and dancing in the barn, arts & crafts, games, hay-wagon rides, and much more.

Below are some photos (courtesy of Tim Indart) from the afternoon's festivities.

You can also see a beautiful collage of pictures from the festival put together by my good friend, Brendan Bowie.

Phila and Erick Hoopes celebrated their 17th wedding anniversary that day.  Our son Andrew made sure to congratulate them.

The kids played human wheelbarrow.  Special thanks to Ray Daffner for organizing all the kids' games:

Our daughter Lauren and her cousin Alex Kerby performed the "Eagle Dance" which they choreographed themselves.  Their costumes were made by Chrissy and my sister Julie Kerby:

Our miniature donkeys loved the attention they got from all the kids:

The afternoon thunderstorm turned our barnyard into a mud pit.  But even that was fun for these three:
