Picnic at Lavender Fields Herb Farm

"And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers."

Acts 2:42

Last Friday we went to Lavender Fields Farm for a picnic with the Schermerhorns' and the Mercers' (friends from church). We arrived right on time and after touring their herb farm we went down to the picnic area. The scenery surrounding their farm and river are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen.

Caleb eating his lunch.

Ellen Schermerhorn eating a banana.

For lunch we just had the normal snackies...everything was yummy!

Caleb caught a fish!

Since Caleb loves fishing he had to bring his rod, reel, and bait with him! He did catch quite a few fish.

Playing in the sand.

The children loved getting all sandy and wet!

Isn't the landscape so amazing?

Digging in the sand.

I really cannot stop talking about how beautiful this place is!

Lexi and Seth.

The water was a bit cold but once you got used to it it really wasn't that bad.

It was a beautiful day (an answer to prayer) - perfect for a picnic!

Caleb and a bass.

Caleb did catch a bass big enough for us to eat (though we were not prepared to bring a fish home), so after much persuading he convinced Mommy that it was okay to bring it home.

Some leaves.

I love Fall (my favorite season of all), because it is just so beautiful outside and it is slowly getting cooler and not hotter! :)

Climbing on the rocks.

Taking a fish off the hook.

While some of the children played the adults and Hannah (sometimes with me...when I wasn't taking pictures) would just sit and talk. It was such a wonderful time of fellowship!

So pretty!

We left around 3 in the afternoon. Lydia was starting to get cranky and Eden and Josiah had not had their naps. We arrived home safe and sound with several different gifts from them like basil vinegar, butterfly bushes, etc. It was a wonderful way to spend a day!

All for Jesus,
