Dirty Bird Picnic

One last nice weekend before the cold comes here in Canada... so why not make the most of it?  This weekend, we all went for a walk along the river and had a nice Dirty Bird picnic on the grass.  This was the first time our children ever had a Dirty Bird picnic.  It was nice that all the kids could experience something for the 1st time together...  instead of the typical "We've all done this before.  Well, except Ping.  She hasn't don this." conversations which come up.  So, with grease dripping down our fingers, and gravy congealing in our stomachs, and coleslaw on our breath, we made our way down the rocks and along the river below... with the dog.

Almost the whole family... next time we go here, Lukai should be with us!

Beautiful falls right in the city

"I was making a silly pose, and my Dad said to stop. "

Half way to the "I'm too cool for lame pictures" look.

"But I LOVE having people take my picture!"

"Daaaaaaaad, why you haf to take my picture?"

"Oh no, take it again, I look bad... let me see, mmmm, no take it again."

Oh goodness don't fall... don't fall...

"... mmm, no, again.  Again.  Let me see?  No, again.  Oh wait!  That's great!"

"Am I cute if I do this?"

"Dad said to stay out of the water, how close can we get before he gets mad?"

"I have a stick!"


  1. Very sweet pics of your family! Thanks for sharing!

  3. What a fun family day! Beautiful scenery!

  4. Looks like you had a wonderful time together.

    I also realize you *must* be from N. Manitoba, as I've only ever heard my husband refer to your KFC picnic eatings as the "dirty bird". Local colloquialisms eh? Luckily he does not wrap himself in bacon and wrestle with bears...yet!
