Annual Company Picnic

Here is another reason why I absolutely LOVE my job!  Every year the technical community holds a family picnic.  They pull out all the stops with a petting zoo, pony rides, inflatable jumping things, popcorn, cotton candy, sno cones, games, prizes, and dinner!  The best of all, every year they have a Cheerios Dig where they fill up a sandbox with Cheerios and then bury prizes in it and let the little ones go wild!  It is lots of fun and definitely a photo op!

Little L shoveling the Cheerios into her mouth even though I repeatedly told her NOT too!  :)

The other game Little L liked was the Duck Pond.  The only thing was she really wanted to play with the water!

Going for the Ducks!

She wanted to keep grabbing them even though she was only supposed to pick three!

Then to top off the day we always have to have the BEST treat ever!  They make Pillsbury chocolate chip cookies and fill them with Hagen-Daz ice cream!  YUMMY!  Those ice cream sandwiches are probably the one thing that everyone looks forward to each year!  

The ice cream sandwiches and the ice cold water were especially a huge hit this year since it was so HOT!  The picnic was actually supposed to be on Tuesday but there were lots of thunderstorms so they moved it to the rain date on Wednesday.  It was nice and sunny with no rain but the humidity was ridiculous and I think we were all red faced and sweating by the time we went home.  We even skipped the petting zoo this year because we were so hot and tired!  At least there is next year!

Oh great... I haven't even had lunch yet and I'm dying for an ice cream sandwich!! : ) Could L BE any cuter?? I don't think so! I love the pic of her with her prize. She is adorable! We definitely need to get together (sooner rather than later hopefully!).

Yowza! I soooo want one of those ice cream sandwiches!

While I don't miss the "work" associated with a job outside the home, I do miss the company parties!

Congratulations on finding balance and thanks for sharing such fun!
