River baptism, mountain picnic!

 

Haley baptised

Saturday was a mighty busy day.  Lil Haley was baptized (along with her cuzn Cort) in the Nottely River by her Uncle Jeff (yay!!!).  Two new (committed) Christians.

Brian, Haley, Faith

Clan Bell/Arnold then celebrated at the local pizza place, while Clan Bell/Dyer went to a local retreat place for our church picnic.  Fun, and food for kids of all ages:

Madison, drone time2

Roland, drone

It’s a bird…it’s a plane…no, it is a drone.  Raymond was brave and let the kids fly it, which Madison thoroughly enjoyed.  She wants to go back out there next year!

sing along

Corn hole games, ladder golf, badminton, kids playing chase and four square, and a sing-along…or just sitting, watching, and enjoying.  The teens stayed out at the retreat dormitory for more games, a bonfire, and an overnighter, while us old ppl brought home the wee ones, got them showered (man, were they sweaty), and put them to bed.  With no objections!

Life is good (and never dull) in our mountain paradise!

So proud of Haley A, and glad your clan could be there for her. I hear that picnic/retreat place is really pretty, I'm sure it was enjoyed by young and older folks alike.
