Our first day in Shelby consisted of Dennis helping Dale on the farm and Kari, the girls and I meeting more ladies and kids to have a picnic. We walked to the picnic spot, maybe 1/2 mile in the cold wind! Luckily when we got to the picnic area there was a 3 sided shelter built around a picnic table and that's where we happily ate our lunch! After the picnic we got some coffee in town and then stopped by Aunt Jewel's house and hung out for a while. It was a great day. (I think Dennis had fun too ... )

Starting on our walk - heading for the picnic. I held Katelynn most of the way - #1 reason for baby snuggles #2 reason it completely kept me warmer! :)
Can you see how stormy and windy it was this day?
Ah, in the shelter at last - one side of the table. Brenda, Eric, Ivan, Kari and Isaac
And the other side - Mari, me, Katelynn, Rowena, Hannah and Alexis

The whole gang - I think the camera moved when I tried to set the auto feature. Anyway - Kari, Rowena, me, Hannah, Alexis, Jewel, Mari, Eric, Isaac and Brenda. Ivan ran off - too many pictures drives 4 year old boys to do crazy things - like run away from pictures! :)
