Today is rainy and cold, but this weekend the weather was absolutely perfect for our annual church camping trip. Dan and I didn’t actually camp, but we spent the day on Saturday out at the campground. It was a bit of a long drive, and we were running later than originally planned, so we put a gift card to good use and ate on the road.
Once we got to the campground, Dan immediately began scouting for a group of people who wanted to run around. Instead, he found a few willing baseball players. So he got to enjoy some baseball. Lydia even got to play a little, and when she wasn’t playing, she was sitting with me eating raisins. Don’t be fooled by the picture, she was having a grand time.
After a while, Lydia wanted to go over to the playground. So we spent a little bit of time swinging and then walked down to the lake. The water was a bit frightening at first, but she enjoyed throwing wet sand into it to make a splash.
Later in the afternoon, we had the annual church camping trip baptism service, where we had the priviledge of witnessing eight baptisms!
To wrap up the evening, we had some dinner and visited with various families at their campsites. We stayed late and had to spend the rest of the weekend resting and recovering, but it was a great time.
