Our First Family Picnic

...and MAN was it fun! It was a beautiful Friday afternoon, after a beautiful first full week of April, after all those mantras about April showers bringing May flowers, I was super excited that so far, the first eight days of April had been pretty dry. SO, I begged Matt to leave work at a reasonable time (like by 4:30 if possible), so that we could take the girls to the park and have a picnic....and he came through! :) Daddy made it home by 5:15 and we were off and running to the park, by way of Jimmy Johns for Mom and Dad and McDonald's for the girl's! We had so much fun! We went to Bee Tree Park, down here by our house and it was wonderful....well, until we discovered that it was/is a major cruising place for our local high schoolers, however thankfully they realized the park was taken over by toddlers, and moved to another location in the park (I think)! Remind me that my girls can NEVER go to Bee Tree Park when they are 12 and over, at least without me!

Eating our dinner....well, kind of! :)
 Playing around....they LOVE the park, and had so so much fun! :)

 The beautiful lake portion of the park....the park is divided into two sections and at the farthest portion of the right side is this beautiful lake, which is quite thankfully at least 1/2 a mile from the playground and CANNOT be seen from the playground either. There is also a nice path around it as well for walking or rollerblading!
 AFTER the park, we got some ice was a big hit and the girls had so much fun!
