Picnic and Paddle at the Park

(Playing catch-up - this is from June)
One sunny afternoon we met up with some friends at a park near our house for a picnic and some fun.

Swings and slides and trees are always fun, but then we decided to let the kiddos kayak a little bit. This park has a little stream running through it - none of it any deeper than knee-depth, but it's deep enough and wide enough for the kids to paddle around a bit.

Gabe showed Sam how to use the paddle, and he was doing pretty well, but then he looked up and saw he was heading towards some overhanging greenery.... Hahaha!

Pheobe enjoyed being pulled along, but then she insisted on using the paddle, and actually did amazingly well with it!

Oliver wasn't into the paddle so much as the towing...

They finished up with some rolling down the hill, and then we all headed home. A very pleasant afternoon!
