Badly Planned Picnic

30 Apr

Yesterday afternoon when the kids woke up from naps we headed down to our favorite camping/picnic spot called Pfeiffer Lake.  Our friends came up from Worthington MN (how can this state on MN be so darn big?).  It took them about seven hours to get to our house.  Our families survived seminary school, life and craziness and are forever tied together because of this experience.  Aleah has known their son since she was only two months old.

We threw some food in a couple bags and headed out with the canoe strapped to the roof.

Once we got to the lake we realized we forgot silverware, plates and we could have used a few more coats.  Ah well, necessity is the mother of invention right?

We used animal crackers to spread the peanut butter and ate the coleslaw mix with pretzels.  The guys ended up wearing the extra coats that the ladies brought.  Although they looked a bit goofy it all worked out and we had a beautiful night canoeing, warming up by the fire and creatively eating our dinner.

We felt like we were the only ones in the world, except for a couple curious loons.
