For the past couple of weeks I've been reminding Mike and Annabelle to keep this afternoon clear for my company picnic. They've been brought up in in the world of Army picnics, which are lovely but are also basically outdoor potlucks. I'm sure it seemed odd to them that I was making such a big deal out of this one, but it definitely lived up to the hype.
The company had rented out this entire farm/park venue. Everywhere you went there was food, beer, wine, etc. This, for example, was the wine tent:
They had activities like building your own stuffed animal, which was a surprising hit with big kids:
We had a great time, and everybody was impressed that I work for such a cool company:
Annabelle had to work tonight, but Mike went with Fred and me to see the Twilight Tattoo up at Ft. Myer. It had rained all day, so I expected it would be moved inside, but the weather decided to cooperate. It was all very impressive!
