Survival Island

Last Wednesday our youth group had its annual Survival Island adventure on an island in Percy Priest Lake, about 15 minutes from our house. This year I brought Maggie, and she had a blast! She loved the boat ride, loved being outside, ALL DAY, and after a while got used to being in the water.

For several years I have been in charge of the "Wheel of Delectables". It's a tamer version of a Fear Factor eating challenge. Maggie thought she'd join in by eating this leaf. She actually continued to chomp on it after the picture was taken.

In her swimsuit and lifejacket, getting ready to go in the water. She liked sitting in the water at the shore, but not floating around with Mommy.
Nap time: on the beach, under some trees, screaming teens running by periodically while they played a capture the flag game. She slept for over an hour this way.
On the boat headed home. She had so much fun riding on the boat.

Melissa, that last pic of her in the life vest really reminded me of you. I actually did a double-take.
