picniking on the warrior.......

No it isn't a new term for editing pictures!

It all started with a phone call from Quinn and an acknowledgement that it was absolutely beautiful outside. "Momma you are going on a picnic with us! Get ready!"

We made sandwiches, grabbed cheese and strawberries. Loaded drinks and a blanket and headed out.

Walking up the trail on the Black Warrior River, Elliot spotted a little peninsula that looked dry and flat enough for our little picnic. It was! Isaiah and Addy loved the fresh air. Quinn and I almost enjoyed a nap. Elliot skipped rocks and Coleen looked on.

We were treated to the sight of the Alabama row team, "Row Tide" practicing their strokes up and down the river. They were sweet enough to wave at Addy. Addy was so excited to see them. She was jumping up and down and yelling at the top of her lungs. Just as we were leaving a huge barge full of coal came along.

All in all it was a very relaxing afternoon. We wrapped it up that evening with dinner at Northport Dinner with Stephen's Grammy and Janet! Cool Saturday afternoon!
