  1. Picnicking in the Park

    Wednesday, May 15, 2013

    I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the lovely comments on my last post! They certainly helped brighten my week. 

    Us Edmontonian AVR members Jill, Erin, Bailey and I had a lovely picnic in the park last Saturday at MacKay Avenue school, which was one of the first schools in Edmonton as well as the home to the first legislature, and now houses the Edmonton Public School archives. The archives weren't open on Saturday, but we made due with the bright sun, hot temperatures and the perfect grounds for croquet.

    Our little outing was to celebrate Bee's birthday, which was the following Monday. Jill outdid herself with flapper pie, gluten-free berry pie as well as her victrola and croquet set!

    1. Ladies you all look so completely marvelous! Isn't croquet a blast? I played often (just for fun) at my paternal grandparents house during summer break as a little girl, and always associate this leisurely sport with summertime as a result.
