a winter picnic

We started off the new year with an interesting venture: A Winter Picnic. The weather was perfect and the snow was excellent for snowman-building.

The menu was simple: peanuts, fruit, hot chocolate, herbal tea, and marshmallows.I loved watching bundled-up kids fumble their way into the hot chocolate.
Don't worry. After taking the picture, I helped them.


Eventually, the marshmallows were toasted -after a herculean effort made by Mr. Steven Smith to light a fire in an ice-laden grill under falling snow.

Some impatient people (ahem. Jessica...) went ahead and broiled their marshmallows with a propane flame.

It was all part of the picnic-fun, though.

The kiddies created a very tall snowman.

They seemed to enjoy the process.

-showing their enjoyment in different ways.

Wow.

Have a wonderful 2010, everyone!
