One of the cool things about living in our city is that there’s a seemingly endless list of cool things to do. In that vein, day one was spent downtown in the “shadow” of the Arch.
We found a lovely patch of shade and the Lord was gracious with the breezes – it was the perfect setting for a picnic.
I have to make a confession. I was in charge of thinking for outings and such and I worked in a couple of our summer bucket list items. Don’t think of it as manipulative, think of it as imaginative or resourceful!
While we ate we memorized Psalm 119:11, “I have hidden your Word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” There were hand motions and a little lesson teaching the meaning of the verse before we ate little Bible cookies (yep, Kitty, I DID IT) (Thanks, Pinterest!). We hid those little guys away in our tummies. . .
This was my first time going here and I have to say it was super fun. Little had refused to wear her bathing suit that morning and she certainly regretted it; wet clothes are heavy. Still, fun was had by ALL.
