Guat Picnic

May 18th, 2008

Yesterday, we gathered together 14 families from the area for a picnic at the park. Despite the fact that no one really wanted to be in charge (I seriously don’t have the brain power to be put in charge of anything right now), the hastily thrown together picnic was a success. All of the families were wonderfully nice and the children (Guat and home grown) were beautiful. I had a great time chatting with everyone and admiring the darling kids running around.

I’m not sure who traveled the farthest…I think I heard someone say they were from the Memphis area and that person would get the prize. But Kristi came from Alabama (a little over an hour) and even if she didn’t make the longest trip, she gets props for getting herself permanently banned from adoption.com. I love fellow rebel-rousers.

We hope to make it a bi-annual event – once in May and once in October so we that can avoid the heat. My uber geek hubby will set up a password protected site to display the photos from the picnic and a group email thread for updates on upcoming picnics or events – so if you are in the Middle Tennessee area leave me a comment that you would like to attend in the future and we can get you added.

And because some of the attendees don’t like having their faces or their children’s faces splashed across the internet, even on my quiet little blog, I will stick strictly to Sabrina cuteness.

A little rocking chair just her size at Cracker Barrel (Steve guessed that perhaps some breakfast goodness might cheer me up after the consignment sale gone wrong). She is currently enchanted with chairs her size:


Showing daddy her treasures – a paperplate she found on the ground and a ball she stole from another family:


She was amazed that another mommy brought picnic supplies to a picnic! Her mommy certainly didn’t so she had to check them out. She hasn’t experienced this phenomenon called preparedness:

    My future kids will have that same expression; shortly followed by the “What is my mom doing!, Seriously!!!” look.

    So jealous! Looks like everyone had a good time.

    So I see you put google adwords on your site. Good for you, but I was wondering how they thought Oxycodone (sp?) and Vicodin (sp?) for only 50 cents a pill would pertain to your blog? What have you been writing about when nobody is looking. Just thought you might get a good laugh knowing you were a drug pusher. Kidding of course : )

    PS I will click on them to see where they take me!

    Gotta love anyone who gets banned from adoption.com! I was never banned from there but stopped going when they showed their true colors towards gay and lesbian parents.
