Features > Milwaukee, WI0 (July 2008) > Lake Park Lutheran Annual Cookout & General Photos


On Sunday, July 20th Lake Park Lutheran Church in Milwaukee held it's annual Worship and Cookout in Lake Park. Since Daniel and I were on the planning committee we'd been preparing for a while and it was satisfying to see that the paper lanterns ordered actually had a use! The turnout was good and everybody had a great time participating in worship in the beautiful outdoor setting, enjoying good food, an auction of Last Supper kitch, and a balloon toss/fight. I've also included some general photos from the church itself from a recent Sunday.

Pastor David worked the Last Supper kitch auction items in the children's sermon - it's all about product placement!

Kids love to mime grown-ups, probably like our own miming of the actions of Jesus...

Next, it was time for the kid toss - I mean the BALOON toss!


IMG_0351
Yes, baloons are much more fun

Twice as much fun with an infant in tow!

Even with a good catch, baloon tossing technique can be a demanding sport
