We just had the most marvelous family picnic in Lian’s garden, to celebrate Shandra and San’s adoption of Tisan. Shandra and Lohr and their twin girls (Miri and Bree) were there. San and Magdalynn and Ahren. Lyria and Lian and Taiga. Saria and Loryn.
The menu was tuna fish sandwiches and potato chips and fresh fruit. Chocolate cake with chocolate icing and Neapolitan ice cream followed. In between lunch and dessert there was a huge play session in the playground, with Saria and Loryn dominating the jungle gym and merry-go-round. Tisan showed aptitude for the swings, and Ahren was the prince of the slide (as he is the prince of everything else, heh).
Afterwards the smaller children settled down for naps beneath Lian’s oak, and Saria and Loryn read their books while their tummies digested all that food! Most of the adults settled onto blankets on the grass to nap and talk and be together; Shandra was busy nursing the babies before taking her rest time and of course Lohr was helping.
I really love our family. It’s so amazing.
