Father/Son Retreat

Grant and Ritchie took off for the weekend on a Father/Son retreat through our church.  Not only were there a ton of church friends there, but several great friends from the neighborhood!  They had an amazing time!

The report I got was that they did activities such as archery, canoeing, shooting a gun, basketball and even an Olympics-style game.  But did they bring home any pictures of those activities??  No.  These were the pictures I saw on my camera when they got home:


Yes, that is my sweet son with his head in a toilet…the same toilet in the above picture….let me explain…

A dear, sweet, wonderful {demented} man at our church, David Lassiter, owns a plumbing business and thought it would be a fabulous idea to use (new) toilets and fill them with lemonade and mini-Snickers and see if the boys would bob for them.

I also hear that while they enjoyed looking at the toilet and giggling, several boys were unwilling to ACTUALLY put their face in and bob.  Not my son.  Full face in.
