A super bowl picnic?

Yep. You read that right. What an adjustment to have a picnic in 70 degree weather in February! We met most of Hub's co-workers at the park and had a great afternoon. The company is composed of three or four bachelors, a temp receptionist, and then two guys who have a family. We are one of those families. ;) I sure am thankful for that other family - they have three boys - and it's nice to have a familiar friend in a place where everything is so new. Plus, she's got some experience under her belt and I really respect and appreciate that. Anyway, the two of us moms took the kiddos to find a playground while everyone else played sand volleyball.

The playground was ENORMOUS - I didn't get a lot of pictures because I was constantly on the go. There were a ton of people - and a ton of things to do - such as huge xylophones, a river to wade in, a lake swimming pool (complete with swimmers, duck, swans and diving boards) pigeons to feed and a snow cone and ice cream stand. By the time we were done, Little one was covered in dirt, ice cream and who knows what else.

After the park, we headed to one of the bachelor's pads to watch the game. (A very nice bachelor pad I might add!) They cooked us wings, ribs, and a bunch more. Phew, it all makes me want to take a nap!

Here are a few of the pictures from the playground.

Little One is very much into birds right now. He is constantly looking for birds in the trees. Usually it goes like this "bords, tees, hi to sky!" "hi bords!" (aka: birds in the trees. high in the sky. hi birds!) So, it was very cool that these pigeons were so sociable. He was pretty amazed to see them so up close! Oh, and yes, by this point of the day, he has no shirt on. He was SO hot in the 70 degrees weather and the humidity.

However, seconds after I took this picture, the flock swooped up and right over Little One's head! He ran to Mama's arms and stayed there!

Love to you!
