After church, we went to out to lunch for my nephew's birthday. We went to a BBQ place called Sticky Fingers. We had about 15 people in our party. When we opened up our silverware, Mark had a HUGE fork in his! We all wondered what in the world he had that big fork for, but we just ignored it at the time. Well, at the end of the meal, they told us that they have a little game at the restaurant and whatever table has the big fork gets the entire meal for FREE! So, our whole party of 15 people got a free meal! Once we heard that, we all ordered dessert! haha That was a nice surprise!
When I got home, I picked some gardenias off the bush in my front yard and put them in a little Mason jar on my counter. Oh my goodness, they smell like heaven! The entire room smells sooo good! Aren't those the best smelling flowers ever??
This afternoon, we had a churchwide picnic and outdoor baptism. We baptized over 40 people at a park near our church and just had a fun afternoon of fellowship. It was blazing hot, though. We were all sweating up a storm. Last year we had it in August and it was sweltering hot. So, this year, we moved it to June and then we had this heatwave. I was wishing I was getting baptized!
Here are a few pictures from today:
There were tons of people there!
