Rain on our picnic!

We prayed for a sunny day all week. But I guess the Lord knew we could handle a little rain on our picnic.

Some friends from church invited us out and took us to Carnfunnock Country Park near Larne.

We picked a table under the trees to help shield us from the worst of the drizzle.

There's George, Elijah and Geoff on one side. Ethan in his car seat. And Ruth and Julie Anne on the right side.

The rest of these pictures are from George's camera.

There was a great play park for the kids that Elijah enjoyed! His favorite part was this long slide. He would go down the slide then run back around to do it again and again!

The picture here on the top left is Geoff and Elijah finding their way through the maze. What fun!

On the drive home the clouds cleared up and the sun was shining brightly!

We went back to their house and ate delicious Chinese take out and played a round of Settlers. Ruth won again!

We had a really great day! I'm so thankful for the friends we are getting to know here. God has been so good in giving us wonderful people to get to know where ever we go!
