Family Picnic

It was a beautiful day today – picture perfect really. We have had good luck for the past two years planning this picnic and ending up with a gorgeous day for it. It has served also as a birthday celebration as today is my mother’s birthday.

Here is Harry getting the drinks and ice situated on the back deck.

 

 

 

 

 

Then he got the sprinkler system set up on the back lawn because the kids have a good time running around getting wet.

It was a pretty relaxing day. We just sat around chatting and enjoying the opportunity to spend some time together. We don’t live that far away from each other but, even so, its not too often that we all get together.

Of course, because it was mom’s birthday, there had to be some kind of surprise! So in the afternoon, we all trooped out to the garage to see her “open” her present. The kids helped. :)

Then we went back inside for a few minutes where Uncle Harry entertained the kids until, too soon, it was time for everyone to head home.

It was a great day, and now it is time to collapse! and relax for the rest of the day. After all, tomorrow is…..NO I’m not going to say it!! But you know it anyway!!
