Happy 2014 from San Carlos Elms

Happy New Year from San Carlos Elms. Today we celebrated with our annual it's Midnight Somewhere party. We enjoyed cider, cake, music, and each other's company, but the most fun we had was reminiscing about the past year, through pictures we had taken. We made a yearbook and had a film rolling of everything we had done throughout the year and the friends we made. It really was a fun party. Can't wait to do it again!
