Tonight was the last hurrah and the church hosted a "luau"-we didn't roast pigs and eat poi, but we did have Hawaiian punch. The kids sang their songs and then played on water slides.There was even a volcano:Preacher-man is not afraid of his girly side-see his skirt:Waikiki Water Slides:It was an awesome week and the VBS team did an awesome job. I am really looking forward to next year!
*Let me clarify-I don't enjoy trying to make other people's kids behave, mind, follow the rules, listen, be polite, etc. It's just no fun, it's tiring. I LOVE polite, well-behaved, well-mannered, charming children-who doesn't? When a child responds to my directives with a yes ma'am and uses please/thank you-I am absolutely smitten. So I am NOT a child hater-I am a hater of trying to civilize unruly munchkins.
The next dance was to Linkin Park Cure for the Itch. (It's the very last song on my music list-listen to it).

Our next one was a little trickier to find-this is why you should always bring children with you:
Just imagine me on my hands and knees trying to find it-OK-don't-but you see why children are really helpful in a situation like this!
From there we went to an old graveyard in search of another one. We never found the cache, but what an awesome place it was. This stone is for a soldier in the C.S.A. infantry!
I could have spent hours here just looking and imagining, but we had to move on. We went to the forest where we walked about about a million miles. It was really hot. Really. I love the smell of piney woods on a hot, hot day.

This is not what I was expecting. I especially love my uni-brow. And the moles. They called this look "Helga Goth". For the girl-beauty school, no-photographer-maybe.
First that and then this:They didn't name this one, but I think I'll call it "Cat at the Morgue". They will be surprised to see what I do to them while they are sleeping tonight. Man, I hope I can stay up longer than they can.

After the picnic, we went to the dinner and fireworks show our church puts on.
It's just a big bummer when you have to eat something besides dessert.
Awesome end to an awesome day-Ahhh-Awesomeness!
