Day of Rest

Sunday, our church had our first ever day of rest. There were no bible classes, but an extended worship, and there were to be no scheduled activities for the remainder of the day. No baby or wedding showers, no meetings, no evening services, etc. I have to say, I was very much looking forward to this day. It is a rare occasion, especially on Sunday afternoons that we aren't busy doing something. Anyway, we decided to spend our day of rest picnicing at the park and enjoying the beautiful day together as a family. Actually, I convinced my family that is what they wanted to do, but I was actually in hopes of getting some good pictures of the kids with all of the beautiful blooms at the park. However, they had other things in mind. They preferred chasing squirrels,
feeding the squirrels,

taking the day of rest very seriously,
admiring the roses,
observing the goldfish, and just horsing around.
They were not at all interested in getting their pictures taken, so this is the best I got of all three. Nice, huh? I'm thinking Sunday afternoon is not our prime picture taking time. Although you can't tell from this picture, we did enjoy our afternoon at the park. I do have a few pictures of the girls that were ok, so I'll have to post those sometime soon.

I definitely spent my afternoon napping :) I want to use your girls for practicing my french braid skills. I need to get back in the game before Vivian gets more hair!

Wendy, someone at the park gave them peanuts, and said they would come right up and eat them out of their hands. I didn't know that, but it seemed to work.
