After church we headed up to our local pond and had ourselves a wonderful, peaceful, and fun afternoon.
We started our family time with a little service project. Each set of partners had a pair of gloves and a trash bag so we could clean up the trail and pond. I didn't think it was going to be so gross but....Oh.My. People are gross.
Anyways after the clean up we enjoyed the nice cool water. :-)
As you can see Ducati enjoyed her lunch. Nothing shows happiness like marshmallows.
But now it was time for Mike to show off his tree roping skills.
He inspired our girls to give the rope a try. Alittle nerve wrecking but they need room to breathe too.
First up, Hailey. It took her a few dry runs to build up her confidence to go all the way.
It was so adorable to watch her. All the grown men around us would stop and say, "Awwww!"
Mason he just sat in a floatie and relaxed. And every time I tried to take his photo he'd turn his face. Never fear I'll get him next time.
