Summer is quickly evolving, so it was time to get out for a good old fashioned picnic yesterday. Families gathering in circles of lawn chairs, children playing on the playground and capturing minnows and Leopard frogs, couples walking hand in hand, families of geese swimming together, my son and I kayaking while my husband read and slept under the shade of a great Plains Cottonwood tree, all made this a positively lovely picnic day!
I finally made time to sketch in my journal! How fun, how relaxing, how peaceful!
Doesn't the frog look at peace too?
Posing for me, I called two little boys over to see the frog. They said it was their first time to see a real frog! Every time I see a frog it is like the first time for me! Rib-bit!
Lately, the only fish we catch are ones we find abandoned by other people.

I like how these three Canadian Geese are all lined up diagonally.
These geese are showing off for the camera, splashing about making a statement.
They agree it was positively a lovely picnic day!
