Happy 4th of July

We had a great picnic at the park across the street yesterday. We had intended to go to a lake about an hour away, but once someone mentioned the idea of just going across the street, we were all enamored with thoughts of not spending 2 hours in the car. Since there is a creek that runs right next to the park, the kids did not have to give up their plans of playing in the water (despite yesterday's high of 70 degrees).

"Helping" Granddad with the grill:

Hmm, how does this thing work?

I got you some more sticks, Granddad!

Waiting for the food:

Josh and Grandma played cards while they waited

Can you tell I got into the cherries?

Mmm, good hot dog . . . no hands required!

There are a couple of families of ducks living in our creek:

Ethan and Grandma tried to count them:

Feeding them was more fun

Can you think of a better way to spend an afternoon when you're six years old:
