Making The Best Of It

Adam Deckerd, 9, of Plainfield, pauses while playing to pose for a portrait in a flooded park at Patoka Lake in Celestine on Tuesday. Adam came to Patoka Lake on vacation with his family. "The flood was not a planned portion on the vacation," said Jeff Deckerd, Adam's uncle. However, as the children found a new use for the flooded park, Adam's mother Stefany Deckerd added, "That's what families do: make the best of it."
