My Real Life

Sunday was our family picnic.

It is something the monkeys look forward to all year.

So does my father-in-law, if the emails he begins sending out in January are any indication.

We picnic at Lewis Morris Park, an enormous, beautiful local park.

The area we reserve has a ball field, a playground, fields, and nature paths.

Snacks, burgers, dogs, sausage and peppers, s’mores.

We have it all.

This year, the skies opened up on us five different times, but we persevered.

Finally, after the fifth rain, we called it a day, but that was around 5:30 and we had been there since 10 am.

It was a good day.

Scenes from a Picnic

On Sunday, we all climbed in the car and drove for a few hours to go to Erin’s house.

Erin and her husband have a “sorta-annual” Memorial Day picnic in May.  It also coincides with her birthday, which I’m always thrilled to celebrate!  (Happy birthday, Erin!)

There was good food, new friends to be made, kiddie pools, sprinklers, toys, horses and sun.

It was a GREAT day!

Mother’s Day Belated

I had the most delicious picnic yesterday.

Monkey in the Middle’s kindergarten class does a belated Mother’s Day celebration where the kids and their moms meet for lunch on the lawn in front of the school and have a picnic.

We packed our own lunches and spent time together and just got to spend a nice hour together in the middle of an otherwise hectic day. It was wonderful!
