the picnic…

(note: the  blog birthday post is still very much open for comments from those of you who haven’t posted one yet! [smile])

While in Ohio, a picnic at the park had been planned for Wednesday afternoon. It started raining that morning and our ‘rain date’ was the Taylors so all of us, along with the aunts and their kids that live in Ohio, headed over there…

We enjoyed:

picnic delicious food, including Aldi’s brand of Oreos (cuz they’re SO much cheaper [smile]!)

picnic-1 + lots and LOTS of laughter

picnic-2 + Ivan’s many facial expressions

picnic-3 + listening to Thomas’ stories of when they went fishing in Alaska (yes, they’ve LIVED there- believe it or not!)

picnic-4 + a sweet cousin

picnic-5 + a smiling one (a wanna-be mechanic-those of you that know Nathan know what I’m talking about! [smile]!

picnic-6 + some delicious fruit punch (that even had a smile on the front of it!)

picnic-7 + more great conversations

picnic-8 + a cute cousin who loves hanging out with me

picnic-9 + a tree swing

picnic-10 + Miss Lydia Anne

picnic-11 + seeing everyone having fun together

picnic-12 + another photogenic cousin

picnic-13 + seeing a little cousin’s joy (who was SO happy about her first ride on the tree swing!)

picnic-14 + three hugging cousins, who are enjoying being together

picnic-15 + more tree swing rides

picnic-16 + seven of the nine girls in the Morgan and Taylor families

picnic-17 + a happy baby girl

one FUN afternoon, with LOADS of GREAT memories!!!

rejoice in thy salvation. I will sing unto the Lord,

because He hath dealt bountifully with me.”

Psalm 13:5-6
