Picnic, Park and Rendezvous

After church this morning we found ourselves relishing in how great our God is and how He has created such a picture perfect day.  Too good of a day to waste time washing windows, cleaning the car out or sorting through closets.  With the almost summer like temps, peak foliage and the smell of fall blasting us in the face we knew we had to do something special with this day.

So we talked with some good friends of ours and we decided to meet at Lake Meyer for a picnic.
 Before settling down for sandwiches and chocolate milk, the boys burnt off some pent up energy.
It was then that we decided to take short drive to our home town of Fort Atkinson for Rendezvous Days.
Rendezvous Days are a chance to recreate what military life in the 1840's might have been like in Fort Atkinson.
After being in the Fort for about 10 minutes, Asher decided he wanted no part of it.  Asher and I decided to leave while Jeremy, Landon and the Waskow's continued on.
It ended up being a perfect Sunday.  Here's one more thought.  This came from Pastor Ed this morning and I can't help but think of it all day.  Don't get caught up in the material things of the world.  We were born to be a follow of Jesus Christ and praise our Savior. Live life and not love things.

"Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever." 1 John 2:15-17
