McKenzie, Maddy, Nicole, Britni, and Tiffany.
Tonight, for our 'Faith in God' activity, we had a potluck picnic at the park. We missed the girls who couldn't make it. Haley was with us, but was being a little camera shy.
Maddy wanted to make something special for the picnic. She got out the recipe book from Saturday's event, along with three other cookbooks. She had a hard time deciding what she wanted to make... there were just too many options! She finally picked lemon bars. The recipe was out of a recipe book I had when I was in grade school. I smiled to think that I was the mother in the kitchen with her daughter - making the same recipe I used to make in the kitchen with my mom. Do you ever have those moments? I have them all the time. "Wow... when did I grow up?"
Back to the picnic. We had quite the spread. Pizza, lemonade, potato chips, carrots, broccoli, lemon bars, animal cookies, fudge striped cookies, chocolate chip cookies, and Ritz crackers topped with cottage cheese and salad supreme. We set up next to the playground. Unfortunately, the wind wanted all the attention. Our plates, along with a few of our lemonade filled cups, kept blowing off the table. "Sorry about the lemonade Leah."
The girls didn't seem to mind the wind. A couple of them used it to their advantage and played Frisbee with their plates. They would wait for just the right moment, then let the wind carry their plates up, up and away! (we picked up after ourselves, no worries) The girls had a good time racing up the rock wall and shocking their leaders with high fives as they slid down the slides.
