An Old Fashioned Family Picnic

To kick off the warm weather season, my entire family (extended on my mother's side) got together at Rocky Pine Acres, which is my grandfather's 100 acre farm, for an old-fashioned family picnic! It was delicious fun for everybody and the weather was perfect! The children hunted for coins in a pile of sawdust, played follow the leader, and had a potato sack race (adults were involved in this one too!). The main event was the amazing race between families. 7 families competed against each other and raced around the property finding clues. Then we ate barbequed turkey sandwhiches, fried chicken, and potato salad. To end the day, we had the rubber ducky race down the stream. Nothing says summer like a picnic. The next event is in July. This time we'll be having a fishing competition. The children can't wait!
