Summer Fun

What is summer without a picnic? Yesterday was my Son-in-laws Navy unit's command picnic. We got there just as people were arriving. We enjoyed our lunch and my Son-in-law introduced me to some of the people he works with. Then we headed off to check out the games. There were games for both the kids and the adults. Having Sissy and Bubba along we stayed with the kid activities.
The adults were spread out, playing; volleyball, horseshoes, basketball, tug-of-war among other games.
 The Navy's fire department was on hand for both safety and fun.
The rides on the little fire engine train was Bubba's favorite, while the horseback ridding was Sissy's. After they got their rides we headed over to the inflatables.
 There were three or four inflatables that looked like tons of fun. However, Sissy and Bubba were more interested in the snow cone's, cotton candy and face painting.

Although it was a beautiful day with a nice breeze blowing the temperature was still very hot so we called it a day and headed back to the comfort of the air conditioner.

We're having a National Night Out block party picnic in our church parking lot on Tuesday. I don't think we'll be as FANCY as this - - - but we will have kids games, police cars, and face painting!

Looks like a lot of fun! Picnics are great, as long as there is a place to sit down and get out of the heat! Hope you are having a great day!

Thanks Keetha and Linda. Keetha I'm sure your block party will be a blast, it is more about the company than it is about the fancy stuff. Linda, it was fun and there were a few tents for shade.
