Company Picnic and More - The Walnut Acre Daily Friday June 12, 2015


The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of His hands. 
Psalm 19:1


When I admire the wonder of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in worship of the Creator. ~ Mahatma Gandhi


We spent a couple hours at my sister's house this morning learning and playing together. 

After coming home for lunch and quiet time Austin, Michael and I met Doug at McKee (where he works as a machinest) to enjoy an afternoon at the company picnic. 

There were fun activities for both kids and adults. Michael was much more independent and adventurous this year and really, really enjoyed the afternoon. These pictures show just a couple of the things he did today. He played games and won quite a few prizes he was very proud of!

There was lots of good food which is Austin's favorite part of the day. 

And there was the cash vault where, if an employee's name was drawn, they could go in and see how much money they could catch as it was blown around them. Doug's name was drawn and he did catch some cash as well as a gift certificate to the McKee bakery store and a certificate for PTO (paid time off) day.

It was a fun afternoon but it was also very hot and humid. I had thought that maybe when I got home this evening I would work in the garden some more. Instead I came home, took a shower, and sat down, intending to get up and get to work in a few minutes. Then Austin put a movie in and I ended up watching that instead. So, I guess, I'll just plan to work in the garden tomorrow instead.

    The outdoors look so lush and green. I love it.
