Good Evening everyone.
It is March Break here in Eastern Canada so today we took our youngest two grandsons out for a Winter's Picnic.. smile..
I mentioned I had been wanting to do such a thing and there came a phone call where Grandpa was called to the phone and it was mentioned that there were a couple of boys who would like to go..
Today the temp was -4 degrees C. and not that bad really as the sun was nice and bright..
We picked them up at 9 am and went to MacDonald's to have our breakfast then we headed for one of my favorite places..
We followed the Petitcodiac River all the way to the
Fundy National Park in Albert Co..
I had gone on the Internet and found that the Rocks on the Bay of Fundy was kind of opened..
There was an alternate trail to the beach and the parking lot was plowed..
Grandpa and the boys went for a little hike to see the beach ...
I decided to stay in the car and drink my coffee and read..
We really had hoped to find a covered picnic table with a fire pit but that was not to be..
We used a snow bank instead.. grin..
The kids didn't mind and seemed to enjoy the hot dogs, potato salad, strawberries and such..
Food tastes so good in the open air even if it is very cold out..
Their Grandma couldn't find the ketchup she had packed but thank heavens there were cheese slices.. smile..
After all that we went and visited some horses who had a beautiful view and chanced upon a deer who waited for us to take his picture..
Then there were kids skating on the river and sliding down a hill.
Airplanes and trains also took their attention..
Along with old barns, covered bridges and little villages nestled in the hills..
When they were tired of looking out the windows they read their books..
Grandpa couldn't get over how well behaved they were..
So quiet and never complaining..
Such sweet boys..
We really enjoyed our day together and hope this will be a little page in their book of memories someday..
Thanks so much for dropping by and I still so enjoy your lovely comments..
The next time we head that way I am sure it will be Spring and the temps will be much warmer..
I don't expect it will be any more enjoyable, though..
Grandpa and I are tuckered out.. grin..
A nice hot cup of tea just hits the spot..
