As the heat increases here (it's already over 100 degrees), it's good to look back at pictures of when it was cooler.
These were taken Easter weekend at a picnic we attended with our teammates and a couple of other families.
Everything was so green.
Almost everyone was eager to hike the mountain, but I stayed behind with Keira and a few.
However, shortly after the group left, Keira ran to catch up with one of the ladies, and they began their ascent.
When everyone made it back down, we sat down to eat.
After about 15 minutes, two men wondering in the countryside approached us and started playing their instruments. A squawking horn and a drum.
It was SO loud, and they got louder.
It turns out they wouldn't leave until every man in the group game them money.
I have an 11-second video to show you how loud it was, but it may be too short for YouTube. It wouldn't let me load it for some reason.
This group of kids covers every grade from 4 to 12, plus pre-K.
That's my son looking back :)
Fun day on God's green earth.
