We had a lovely branch picnic at Lake Shaftsbury yesterday. We had grilled burgers, pie eating contests, three legged races (Jeremy and I won - since our legs are the same length), stick pull competitions, giant jenga, and potato sack races. We had a great time.
My favorite part was a taking a little canoe ride around the lake. A member of our congregation graciously brought his two canoes to the picnic. Our canoe had three life jackets, but only one paddle. Our second paddle was in the other canoe. It worked out great for me though. Jeremy did all of the work while I just took in the gorgeous views. He really is my favorite and I just love chatting with him. I'm definitely hoping for some more canoeing this summer.
