A tisket, a tasket, we had a picnic without the basket...

Yesterday JC and I went to a last minute picnic at a local park with the kids of these two chicks
(and of course there were cameras involved)...





It was interesting to see this group of kids who had never met before and how they immediately started playing like they have been friends forever. Unlike adults, children play with whomever is there and it is amazing to see that. Children playing without any worries and watching them accept each other is something to behold.
Adults should take notes and learn how to play nice huh?

Love it, all of them playing....

JC checking out to see who was taller...

The park is one of our favorite summer spots to go, what's your family's?

I need to remember to put on extra makeup before getting together with you crazy photogs. I love having all these professional photos, tho! You are awesome!

What great pictures! The boys were telling me all about their new friends and how much fun they had. It's great that they all were able to meet.

Looks like everyone had a great time! My family loves to go out to my aunt's house where she has a pool and 4-wheelers and lots of land to play around on. We also like going to the park, zoo, and taking walks in the evenings. :)

I hope you don't mind, I tagged you in my blog:

We are all about playgrounds and parks in the summer!

That is so cool that you guys have each other so close.

Those pictures are great! Man, I wish I lived closer so I could hang out with you guys. It looks like a wonderful day at the park. We love the park especially the ones that have water activities, but our backyard was the best spot in town this summer. :)

Great pictures! I agree that adults can definitely learn a lot from the way children behave.
We love to go to Deep River (the county park, not the waterpark!)for picnics and the like. We had professional photos taken there this Spring...I love when the tulips are in bloom!

Those are great pictures and yes, I love the innocence of children. Our favorite place to go during the summer is the pool. My kids are little fishies and they can't seem to ever get enough!

If we actually did anything as a family (which we don't), I would have to say the beach. Wait, maybe that's MY favorite summer hangout. I'd have to ask them what they think.

Looks like a great time!

Fun! Great pics! Our favorite summer hangout is the "bunkhouse". Family and friends all get together at the farm and hang out, the kids can run around. Some of my favorite memories from my childhood are there and I hope my kids will feel the same way when they are older! ;o)
