« Part 1: LJ Picnic - ONTARIO, Canada Part 2 of LJ Site series Part 3: Plans for Next Year »

Our local LumberJocks’ picnic has now come and gone. The weather was perfect – not too hot and not to cold = and no rain!!!

When Rick and I showed up my Mom and my Aunt and Uncle were already there waiting. We later had another guest, a friend who had read about the picnic in the paper.

Starting the event off, we looked through the “official” LumberJocks’ photo album viewing pictures of MsDebbieP’s adventures around the world and as the shop Inspector. (Douglas, I gave full credit to you re: the photos). At first, my Mom thought it was just some pictures of some guy travelling around the world. Then, after my Aunt corrected her, they had to go back and start over. Yes, indeed, it had everyone laughing.

MsDebbieP had to do some supervising to keep everyone in line.

Setting up for lunch, my aunt pulled out her woodworking projects: a mosquito house, which we hung by our sign and a small wooden table that she sat on the picnic table. (She had purchased them, not made them, but they were very fitting for a LumberJocks’ picnic!!)

We had a great lunch (wrapping up with watermelon, of course)

and then the children played on the playground equipment, followed by the adults playing a game of bocci ball.

4 hours later (big yawn) it was time to wrap it up and head home.

It was a great time.

No wonder my Grandmother drove the spike in the railroad…. It’s in the genes.

Awesome, Debbie. July 15th was my daughters birthday so we had dinner with my parents. It looks like you had a great day!
