This evening we had a picnic in the park. Counting our five, my brothers three and add my Mom in gave us nine people to feed. We had ourselves a feast! I had slow cooked some shredded pork all day and boiled up some corn on the cob, and my Mom brought mac and cheese and fruit cups for dessert.
Before, during and after eating dinner, the kids were running all over the place. Cathryn seemed to be the boys favorite tonight. They were climbing all over her and chasing her every chance they got. Mike and Matthew were trying to find bugs on the trees to put in Matthews little bug catcher. After dinner we walked over to the lake to feed the ducks. We went through so much bread, Wyatt was so excited, he threw a whole piece of bread in the water.
While walking back to the cars to go home, we noticed the sprinklers were on by the parking lot. Wyatt ran right to them and after a bit of convincing, Mike, Matthew and Cathryn joined him and Don. Michael and Cathryn jumped over the water spray and Matthew was so excited about playing in the water. Lucas joined them after a while, but preferred to stay out of the water for the most part. Jaxon on the other hand- wanted nothing to do with the sprinklers at all. I would definitely classify this as a perfect evening.
