Best celebration of the week!

Today we went to a nearby lake, and had the best celebration of the summer. Some of our best friends met us there and we had a picnic. It was just perfect. The kids played at the edge of the lake, while the moms chatted and the dads played catch while they kept an eye on the grill.

JL really wanted to join the game of catch.

A couple of the boys joined the dads' game of catch.

All of the kids, except JL, played in the mud at the edge of the lake.

Such a cute 2 year old!

the grill master :)

After lunch, we packed up and headed to the beach (just on the other side of the fence.) Then, this happened:

JT has been waiting to be baptized for well over a year. We wanted to be sure he understood the decision he was making, and that he was able to articulate his thoughts about it. So very proud of Papi & JT for choosing to live for Christ, and for making public their decision through baptism.

After the baptisms, most everyone jumped in the lake and played for about another 45 minutes or so. The water was fairly cold, so some chose to play in the sand, and some enjoyed playing in the waist-deep (for some) water. :)

Once we got home, JL, JMC, & I took naps, and Papi, JA, & JT went fishing. They stayed out until 6:30, but came home with dinner! We were all excited to eat the delicious fresh fish they caught, and no one complained at all about a late dinner, it was just so delicious!
