Evening at the Lake

A week ago Saturday, after a long day of hard work, we quickly made dinner and headed down to the lake for some relaxation. Faith did a great job taking the majority of these pictures (the ones that she is not in at least) and we all had a fun time either fishing, swimming or just enjoying the beauty of God's creation!

Miss Quirky smile here says that she doesn't like her picture taken. So I say, "well I do, and since I am usually behind the camera all the time, why don't you take pictures tonight!" ~Thanks Faith, you did a great job!

Josh catching some lily pads. Christianna almost caught a little guy but he slipped off the hook, making for a no catch evening.

We forgot to bring worms and hot dogs (thus my assumption of why we did not catch anything) and the fish didn't seem to care for hamburger or pickles and yes, even all those plastic lures that the boys swear by! =)

I really like these last two pictures! Faith did a great job!

Still not catching anything.
Our entertainer.
We finally gave up on the fishing and dove in for a swim. Josh, Josiah and I, that is.

Besides the occasional tangle with the slimy weeds, accompanied with screams and much splashing, we had a great time while Christianna drove Josiah's motor boat around us!

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne;
Mercy and truth go before Your face.
Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound!
They walk, O LORD, in the light of Your countenance.
In Your name they rejoice all day long,
And in Your righteousness they are exalted.
For You are the glory of their strength,
And in Your favor our horn is exalted.
For our shield belongs to the LORD,
And our king to the Holy One of Israel.
Psalm 18:14-18
