Yesterday we gathered together for our monthly potluck with our local adoptive group at a small pavilion in a local park. It was my first time at this pavilion and what a beautiful location. It was a bit far to walk from the parking lot but it was a nice place. There were trees surrounding it, a little creek running close to it, a huge bar-b-que pit and a cool breeze at times. It was the only one that was still available when I called to inquire about reserving one. I was a bit worried that we might get some rain but we didn't and the weather was perfect.
Everyone really outdid themselves with the dishes they brought. I think almost everything was homemade and really tasty. (Tasty is one of Chani's new words.) So is "shit" but we won't go there. We chatted and the kids played in a small play ground and around the pavilion with the ball. They are so cute when they all get together.
Here are some pictures of the day.
A little background on the 3 Word Photo. I despise grasshoppers with a passion. They are the most disgusting creatures and I can NOT stand them. They freak me out, big time. Well, when I went to upload the picnic photos, here was the very first picture that came up. Gross! Matt didn't tell me about it and thought it would be funny for me to just happen upon them. And yes, even the picture gives me the willies.
