The Best Picnic Ever!

The company Dave works for held a picnic this year. It was held at a local outdoor YMCA. What a gorgeous place! It was a nice balance of woods and fields and the buildings were so nice. There was lots to do from the very smallest to the oldest. I was very impressed at all that they had for us & their generosity. The meal was delicious too & there was lots of it!

The best part for Boo, Sweet Pea, Elvis & I was the Banana Boat ride. We had never been on this before and thought, "Why not?" The regular boat ride had already filled up and the lady signing people up said, "You'll get a little wet". I figured I could handle a little bit of water but went to change into my swimsuit just in case. Good thing I did b/c we came back SOAKED!!!!!! Holy cow! The whole time I hung on for dear life! We were laughing, screaming and praying to God to keep us alive. I was seriously impressed that Elvis hung on the entire time. It was not an easy thing to do let me tell you. It was WILD! We are still talking about our adventurous ride.

It was a great day & we all agreed we can hardly wait until next year. We also agree that we are very thankful Daddy works for a company that cares about their employees and is so generous. We are blessed & thank God for this job.

We were some of the first to arrive. After signing in, doling out our raffle tickets & receiving our free beach towel we went to the Duck Pond. There were all sorts of ducks to choose from. The kids received a prize based on which duck they selected. And of course the ducks were all cats & dogs! (For those of you who don't know Dave works for a pet food company.)

Face painting!
Normally with 4 kids, (Princess is not old enough), we don't do face painting b/c it is too expensive. But here it was included in the festivities! Fun!

The Bouncy House was right by the face painting which was great. It gave the younger kids something fun to do while they waited for their siblings.

A fierce tiger! Rrrrowwww!

Boo's Turn

Sweet Pea decided to join in.

Good sports from the company sat in the dunking tank & met the water quite frequently.

Watermelon is a favorite with our Spiderman!

Two tigers chomping down on chicken.

The kid waterpark was fun. Very clean & lots of life guards too! Mommy like!

Doesn't she look like a pretty little flower?

The coconut tree sprayed water.
There were lots of other sprayers too which made it all the more fun.

What a fun, Fun, FUN day!
