Sunday was our annual church picnic at Abrams Park. It was HOT! (Okay, the 90's are really hot here in the Northwest!) We loved the chance to enjoy the food, fun and friends! Amarra got to play with bf Morgan while Seleia and Elora went crawdad catching in the creek...later Amarra joined them and ended up IN the (shallow) creek, which plenty of other children seemed to think was a good idea...so, of course, they went in after her! There was a search for candy through a haystack (apparently more fun than looking for a needle!) and a water balloon fight, but the hilarity started when a pack of regular balloons came out and, when filled with water, would NOT pop! After a few people about got their heads knocked off and a few others played water balloon keep-away, the knots came out of the balloons and they were turned into surprisingly effective water guns! I think that particular water war lasted over an hour but the laughter never died down! I got to sit in the shade, enjoy great conversation, and soak it all in. (A side note: Miss Seleia Vaughn took all of the pictures of the girls in the tree. Isn't she getting good??)
