We love to go on picnics. Yesterday we went to a new place and half of it was great and the other half was not so great. The great part was the covered picnic tables right on the lake. It was so nice and breezy not to mention beautiful sitting by the lake. And the kids loved watching the boats go by and watching the ducks swim. But the not so great part was the duck poop everywhere! If you were sitting at the table you were fine but when Jack got up I really had to watch him so he didn't step in it. But it was funny because he would walk around pointing and saying, "poop, poop!" After lunch we found rocks and sticks to throw into the lake. That is always a favorite. Next we headed to the playground but I didn't let them play because it had sand in it. We don't do sand unless we are at the beach. I am not a fan of bringing sand in my house and cleaning it out of shoes and everything else. So we just ran around the picnic tables. Funny, right? or maybe you are thinking, weird? I know they are kids they are suppose to get dirty but dirt I can handle, sand I cannot. At the beach is fine because one it is not my house and we wear flip flops or crocs. So easy to clean. Ok anyway, I don't feel guilty. We still had a good time and will be visiting this place again.
