Perfect Day for a Picnic!

On Saturday Christopher’s company had a picnic at Canale Farms in Oakland, TN for all employees and their families. It was SO much fun! The weather was unbelievably perfect: 70 degrees and sunny… absolutely gorgeous!

So the playground said it was for 11 and under… I was sad at first ’cause I assumed it meant “11 years and under,” but after further thought I decided it must mean “11 feet and under”… πŸ˜‰

I challenged Christopher to a game of tetherball! Which I promptly lost, haha! But we had a great time with it. However, I DID win Bingo… TWICE! And Christopher won the “high striker” competition by making the bell ring! So proud. πŸ˜‰

The Hippity-Hop race! I wiped out twice in this race (though I wasn’t the only one) and Christopher won it all! In fact he got so far ahead of everyone else that he turned around and started hopping backwards… it was hilarious!

Editing this post to add this photo of Christopher hopping backwards as we try to catch up… he’s such a punk πŸ˜›

We are like 5 inside… seriously. πŸ˜›

Totally random, but super cool: we got to meet Dusty, aΒ PalominoΒ horse that is a direct descendant of Roy Roger’s horse, Trigger! He was such a beauty! Oh, and check out Christopher carrying out all the stuff we won from the competitions, haha!

It was a fabulous day and we had such a good time! πŸ™‚
