This past Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday during Sunday School, our church, Trinity Baptist Church, had its annual Vacation Bible School. We are a small church plus our dads like to participate and teach so we do it on a weekend. The children get the same number of lessons they would get in a week long VBS so they aren’t missing out.

We selected Proverbs 6:6, “Go to the ant, O sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.” for our theme verse.
I was in charge of the kitchen so we went with a picnic with ants all around for our decor.
My aunt’s students have made the decorations for me the last few years. They always do a great job! We normally only have to add a few things to them to complete the fellowship hall.
Thanks, Aunt Pat!!!
These cute little wooden ants were made by one of my Aunt’s coaches at her school. He made 13 of them for my table toppers. Wasn’t that nice of him!
The cute little wall ant was in Rob and Chad’s room. Chad’s wife, Amy, made these as part of their decorations. They were representing the inside of an ant hill.
Here’s my friend, Candi, who came to help me out in the kitchen. She goes to a different church but she does bible study with us and has helped us out the past few years. Isn’t she cute with her pregnant belly sticking out while working! That little one is due in a few weeks. Can’t wait to meet him or her :)
Here’s some pictures of the food we made that went with our theme. We served BBQ Pork sandwiches, Hot Dogs, Baked Beans, Macaroni and Cheese, Cole Slaw, Pasta Salad, Ant Hill Cakes, and Dirt Cake for lunch.
Here’s Miriam, Abram, Cameron, and Cai during one of their snack times.

Carlo and Asa
He and his wife worked with the bed babies along with another couple. Every time I saw him, he had my little man with him. I think they liked each other :)

(Yes, we planned on matching for the kitchen on Saturday!)
Mrs. Pat enjoying a break from the toddlers! It’s a long time to be in a room full of 2-3 year olds all day.

Father and son resting from a long day!
He kept trying to get in my pictures so I captured one of his stunts. Plus, he made faces at me every time the camera came near.
