In the stream of sunshine coming through one of the windows in my room Monday morning the grand girls spread out a blanket and decided to have a picnic !
They munched on crackers their mom provided. Then they used the cracker crumbs like grains of sand to shovel in their buckets with bit of a fuss about who got the most crumbs ; but it was a fun way to start the day ; and when the temperature reached 55 degrees we all made it outside . I drove to the indoor pool to swim laps ; my son-in-law mowed some of the grass ; and the rest of the family gathered around the campfire ring to burn some of the branches that fell during the winter storms ; and then we roasted hot dogs and had a chilly first picnic for 2012 ! <3
