8/22/07 – I posted the pictures but never got around to writing about it till now. Better late than never! Eugene was so kind to organize this fun day for us. It was supposed to be at Lick Mill Park near his house, but when he arrived at the ungodly Sunday morning hour of 7.30am, all the picnic tables had already be taken! Plan B: a small park that was literally 2 minutes away from my house, one I never knew existed in the 8 years I’ve been living there.
It turned out to be a really nice spot. Our potluck picnic resulted in a veritable feast of burgers, hotdogs, potato salad, chips, samosas, fried rice, chow mein, Korean bbq ribs, grilled shrimp, kabobs, Hawaiian spam rolls (not sure what they are really called but they sure were yummy) and chocolate cupcakes. There was no shortage of food for sure!
The best part was just hanging out with everyone. We had a great group… adults, kids and 2 puppies. We got a game of wiffle ball going, which is essentially baseball using a plastic bat and ball. Fun! Then we played ‘Steal the Bacon’, where we had run around A LOT trying to steal the ball from the other team. Phew, some of us could really feel our age catching up on us then!
It was a wonderful way to enjoy the beautiful California sunshine.
