Some of you are regulars at the fourth of July picnic at our house, but I did want to post a reminder in case anyone needed added impetus to make it here.
When Certain Man and I moved to Delaware from Ohio, one of the things we missed was the Labor Day Picnic that was held at United Bethel. It was something people looked forward to year after year, and it was a great time to get together, visit, have fun, play games, and enjoy some good food.
One year, shortly after we moved to Milford from Greenwood, the church from Brooklyn, New York, came down over the fourth of July. It seemed like a fun thing to make a picnic that day. There were lots of inner city people who had very little exposure to country life. We were newly settled in at Shady Acres, but Certain Man thought that our little corner of God’s earth would be the perfect place to have it. And that is where it all began.
There will be relays
Hopefully, a train ride
(Are two “fellows in the same boat” the same as “Two fellows in the same ship”????)
Just lots of good fun1
When: 3:00 Today, July 4, 2009
Where: Here at Shady Acres
Who: Anybody who wants to come
Bring your favorite picnic food, lawn chairs, blankets, etc.
We have some riding toys, but often the small fry like to bring their own bikes, trikes, etc.
Hotdogs, hamburgers will be provided (bring your own rolls– and take home what doesn’t get eaten, please!)
We plan to churn several tubs of homemade ice cream after supper.
Bring on the strong arms and co-operative spirits.
Hope to see you there!!!
