Late Summer Picnic...

We had our last picnic of the year (we'll see) with the whole family on Saturday night at Benanna Lake. It is a wonderful park on private property and was named after the original owners (Ben & Anna). The generous owners allow friends and family to use the facilities on a 'first come' basis. What a great place to have all to ourselves!

Heidi and Emme went paddling...thankfully Emme figured out the steering or Heidi would still be out there!
Tim took Ranen for a ride...we weren't sure how safe that was, since Tim landed up in the water the last time we were here. Everyone stayed dry this time.

The kids loved the old water pump.

"So who put a girl on the back of my tractor?"

Oh yes, and the reason we were picnicking was...

"Happy Birthday, Grandpa!"

It was a good way to end the season. In a few weeks we will be celebrating Thanksgiving and we will be enjoying the beauty of fall.


  1. Oh paddle boats! We have those at the camp. Fun but tire these old legs out!

    What gorgeous photos and a beautiful family.

    I agree, a great way to end a beautiful summer and a Happy Birthday as well!


  2. Oh what fun you have with your kids and grandkids. Good for you,to celebrate whenever you can.

  3. Happy grandpa ... doen't have to hide his coke anymore!
