Shady Acres is gearing up for the Annual July 4th picnic.
Some pictures from last year to whet your appetite–
We plan to have the train again– so come on, kiddoes!
There will be big friends and little friends. These two have the same name — Caleb and Kaleb
We plan to have food — Maybe not crabs this year, (but we won’t turn them down, Loretta B.)
Hamburgers and hotdogs in aplenty. Youngest Daughter with her favorite condiment.
Bring your friends and your cousins — pose for a picture or two.
(These five are all Mark Yoder, Sr.’s grandchildren
From left to right, Tim (Mark, Jr.’s) Carmen (Alma’s) Maria (Sarah’s) Rachel (our’s) and Holly (Mark Jr.)
These five were born in less than four years.
Certain Man runs the grill, and JR often helps out. Here, Joel lends a helping hand, too.
And you can always find a place to sit! We watch out for the small fry, even when they are in the middle of the road!
It is fun to twirl away on the swing. Here a little Mast lady gets her turn.
What good is a picnic on a hot Fourth of July without water relays??? Young Mr. Wilkie does his part.
And then there is ice cream to churn. Tsk, tsk. Mr. Robert sits while ThisisLoretta does the work!
With neighbors and church family and relatives and friends, short order is made of hand churning three big tubs of ice cream.
A sudden storm can put a damper on things in a hurry!
Literally. But it didn’t stop the fun!
Several days later, all is pretty much back to normal.
The purpose of this post is just to let you know that if any of you can make it, we’d be glad to have you!!!
Wednesday afternoon, any time after 3:00 at Shady Acres Farm
. We plan to eat at 5:30-6:00.
Bring potluck picnic foods, we supply hamburgers and hotdogs.
Help with the drink is always appreciated.
Hope to see you here!
(By the way, if you want to see all of last year’s pictures, go to my posting on July 6, 2007. That was a LONG, long version of this one and it tells the whole tale.
