Saturday was my husband's work picnic, and we took the five youngest kids while the two older girls hid in their rooms to read the newest HP book. The picnic was fun, the kids playing in water and jumping around in a 'moonwalk' bouncer. It was nice to sit and have someone else cook for a change! I did, however, bring a really good tortellini salad to share.
