A fun day as a family

Yesterday our family decided to visit a church in another town since they were hosting a speaker that my parents wanted to hear. We also decided to pack a lunch so that afterwords we could go and spend the day as a family. While looking for a park to eat lunch at, we saw a sign for a free outdoor expo that had activities for the whole family. We went to check it out, and we ended up having one of the funnest family days we've had in a long time! It was so fun to spend a day just being a family.

Mom and Lydia (4) kayaking

My little brothers: Caleb (6) and Joshua (8)

Dad and Caleb kayaking
Hannah (12) trying out archery
Joshua getting ready to shoot his arrow
Caleb and Lydia making pop bottle bird feeders
Sarah, Joshua, and Caleb all shot a BB gun for the first time
I decided to try shooting a shotgun (this was the first time I had ever done it).  My dad, mom, and Hannah all did this too and I'll just say that...they all did better than I did. It was actually a lot of fun, but my arm is a little sore today :)
The perfect ending for a perfect day
