Our Sunday School class had an afternoon/evening excursion to a cabin owned by the grandparents of one of our members yesterday. It is a really neat place, a pond for fishing,
(or taking pictures while fishing... Joey, did you catch any fish that way?)
swimming if it's warm enough, and boating,
a four wheeler,
swings, a nice walking path, a fire ring, etc. When I was in high school the youth group used it several times for overnight camp outs! We had a lot of fun! I think it was Luke's ideal kind of day, being outside all day with lots of fun people to entertain and play with. Here are a few more pics.
(What do you see, Lukey?)
One thing I don't have pics of are people trying their hand at shooting clay pigeons. I think all the guys tried their hand at it and at least one of the girls did too. We roasted hot dogs and everyone brought side dishes so there was more than enough food when we got hungry. Luke enjoyed feeding my brother Ben chips while he fished, which was good for Ben too since his hands were all covered with worm goo.
Two people brought their dogs out, this one is Mark and Amanda's brand new baby.
She is supper cute and spent most of the day cuddled up with just about everyone in turn. I don't have a picture of Whinny but she behaved herself really well and I think managed to use up a little of her boundless energy tearing all over the place the whole evening. When it started to get dark and chilly we started a camp fire and made s'mores.
Finally after 9pm Greg and I realized how late it was getting and that we still had a good drive home to get through before we could get Luke to bed. I don't know how long everyone else stayed after that, but it was a really good day. Thanks to Mark and Amanda for hosting and getting a social event off the ground! You did a great job!
