As cousin Mary Janet was visiting
this week we
decided to have a family picnic together. To keep the boys busy, we chose Parc
des Cèdres near the marina in Ottawa . Aylmer
Karine was first to arrive with Samuel and David. When we joined them, the boys were happy to show us the playground.
Then we enjoyed our picnic supper together. Mary Janet brought some chocolate "ladybugs" for the boys and some chocolate truffles for the adults.
Barbara and Sam ran up the hill to get some new tugboats for the boys - they wanted to go swimming. As it was a cool evening there was lots of room on the beach and in the water. The older adults watched the action from lawn chairs.
When it was time to leave we carried the gear back the cars. The tired boys happily settled into their car seats for a good rest.
