A snowy summer BBQ!
Our annual Bigs and Littles summer BBQ had an unexpected visitor: snow! But our Bigs and Littles are tough and went paddling down the Yukon River anyway. Special thanks to Up North adventures for keeping 16 Bigs and Littles as happy, warm and dry as they could be on such a chilly August day!
