a picnic and a rainbow

There was a gathering at a campground by a lake with our church on a Saturday in July, so we drove north to check it out.

Jesse loved to walk as deep as he could stand. More than once he was nearly underwater with his hands in the air, still holding his breath (but definitely looking like he was drowning).

As the sun didn't come out, the kids got cold and changed, and we found a playground.

We went home after lunch and some more swimming. Later in the afternoon, we saw this beauty in the sky. As it emerged - we could only see each end at first - we could see the entire rainbow, but I couldn't fit the whole thing in the frame on my phone despite running to the opposite corner of the field across from our house. The rainbow was spectacular. (The pictures are not so much.)
