Although the picnic wasn't due to start until 2pm, we both decided it would be fun to just do nothing all day in the park, so headed over to a grocery store. Inside the store they sell everything a normal supermarket would. Except everything is physically scaled down; the shopping cart was 50% smaller in all respects, as were the aisles and the boxes containing the produce.
We arrived in the park and set up some blankets - one in the sun and one in the shade. Jen parked up in the sun! I MEAN COME ON! I'm the one who needs the tan here :D Soon after her friends arrived and so did Jeff sans Chicken (OH don't think I forgot JEFFREY!!! On no you didn't!!!!), Debra and her hilarious friend Madeleine who was to be my mother for the day.
Tops came off. Mine stayed on! I'm British and I have some pride and didn't want to blind people with my skin tone! Was such a nice relaxing time; being fed by Madeleine - I think she was taking the mothering part quite serious, although I drew the line at having my mouth wiped down with a spat-on-hanky! Playing volley ball - almost killing a small baby (Ok that wasn't a highlight!), throwing the Frisbee - almost killing the same small baby (I stopped playing at this point!) and when that cute little boy came over and stole a cracker and passed a second one to his dad! That was so freaking cute!!!
Was a great day! Hope to see you all again soon :D
