Sunday Afternoon Beach Picnic
After church, we grabbed Scout, some free-to-us box lunches and a free beach pass given to us as well and headed to the beach! We had spent all day Saturday getting caught up on house projects and all sorts of odd jobs needing to be done and decided we'd reward everyone with a little fun outing to celebrate their completion!
I had spent a fair amount of time at church that week helping with the Missions Conference and was thrilled to be able to bring home a few extra box lunches that were left after one of the meals served. This reminded me of another time we got free lunches and I turned them into a cute picnic too! I didn't really cute-ify these but it was so nice to have a simple tasty lunch to pack and go.
It was a little chilly to be in the water but that didn't stop some of our party from dipping their toes or whole selves in! Scout is not a fan of water but he loved the rest of it - especially people, people are his favorite!
I enjoyed re-reading a favorite book: The Hiding Place. I am always moved, inspired, convicted and humbled by this story. It is worth reading again and again.
Lovely afternoon of free food and fun!
