Church Retreat

On Saturday we went out "Youth Camp", a beautiful wooded recreational area, to spend time with other families from our church.

We love going out to Youth Camp this time of year and Saturday was absolutely gorgeous.

We arrived a little too late to take out the canoes this year, but we enjoyed the lake, hiking, and just being outdoors.

Sorry for all the iPhone photos, but I didn't want to carry a camera on our hikes.

This shot will be absolutely beautiful in a month with all the leaves in full color.

Brennan was disappointed we hadn't brought swimsuits.

After enjoying a day outdoors, we had a pot luck (that's a "pitch in" for all my Hoosier friends) at the shelter house.  We roasted hot dogs in the open fire and had fun visiting.

Then our family pastor set up "Minute to Win It" games for all of us.

Here's David in the balloon juggling event.
The games were a ton of fun and great because kids aged 2 through adults all got to play.

A wonderful Saturday with friends, family, and the beautiful outdoors.

Looks like a fun weekend! This youth camp looks like a fun place in the summertime, too.

How much fun, Bonnie! I was over looking at some of your recipes, too. I love red beans and rice, and I cook it often. :D
