Last Thursday, we drove down to Brethren to have a picnic with the kids. They were going to visit Julie' family over the holiday weekend so we thought we'd get a short visit in with them before they left. We packed up the car and headed South. :)
We met the kids at their house, then drove to one of the village parks. We had made sure we had included Abigail's booster seat in our car so that she could ride with us. This gave Patrick and Julie the opportunity to ride together on one of Patrick's motorcycles, meeting us at the park.
Our former neighbor, Maniphone, who now lives in Grand Forks, ND, had sent me a little "gift" for Abigail. Abigail happily opened it as everyone sat down to eat.
Here is a close up of the bracelet Maniphone made for Abigail. Beautiful, isn't it? :)
To keep it safe while Abigail was playing with Grandpa Don on the playground equipment, she had "Horsey" wear it. :)
We had a great time and plan to do this more often.
