Christian eagerly climbed into Papa’s canoe at Lake of the Hills, where we celebrated Independence Day with family.
He survived his first canoe ride without capsizing!
God blessed us with perfect weather for our gathering—moderate temperatures and plenty of sunshine.
While Christian explored the lake, Rebecca grabbed her fishing pole.
Rebecca caught this sunfish with irresistible hot dog bait.
Back into the lake you go, little fish.
Christian caught a sunfish, too.
Adventurous Aunt Bianca and Rebecca paddled around the island, returning without incident:)
Now, Dad’s turn.
Terry snagged this largemouth bass, who was also returned to his lake home.
Later in the afternoon, Rebecca piloted Papa around the island in his motor boat.
Thanks again, Uncle Dale (and unpictured Aunt Bev), for sharing your peaceful getaway!
