A Mother's Day Tradition

Mother's Day was wonderful.  Our family Tradition is to spend the day at Talache on Lake Pend Orielle, rain or shine.  I don't consider the day to be quite right, somehow, without all kinds of weather - warm sunshine, pouring rain, and windy, blue-tinted fog.
 
The Lord blessed us with a wonderful day, sweet fellowship, and glorious Idaho spring weather!
 
 
Whilst some set up camp. . . 
 
 
Others awoke the sleeping echoes with a very loud and joyful noise with the aid of their accordion=)
 
 
Once the H's and S's arrived, the traditional pastime of  - rock-throwing, shall we call it? - commenced.
 
 
Balancing the towers
 
 
 
 
 
No words need be added to this pristine loveliness, save that we serve an awesome God
 
 
"But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life."  John 7:14
 
 
The cause for a celebration!
 
 
Almost ready
 
 
 
 
 
 
The spectators take their positions 
 
 
The photographers are on the scene
 
 
Let the games begin!!

Once the towers were demolished, we retired to the festal board to a sumptuous feast, followed by a programme including Capture The Flag, theology around the campfire, singing, and much jollity, which went undocumented by camera due to dead batteries.
 
 
Have a wonderful day, y'all!
