The Second Annual Spring Grandma’s Picnic

It’s official. My mom hosted her second annual Spring Grandma’s Picnic, along with Anna, Mary, and me. This year, our number happily grew, and wow, what an awesome group of cousins!

We’ve found to do something consistently, one must plan for it, and then do it! What might the Lord be nudging you to do on a regular basis? ๐Ÿ™‚

We enjoyed these sweet littles, each other’s company, and the blessings of spring sunshine.


After swinging and lots of energy expended on the play structure, Mom set up hopscotch.

Buddy jumped right in.

Picnic time!

Time for the three-legged races. I loved seeing the variety of pairs. This one was pretty evenly matched.

But, I will say, this: Tina + Betsy totally outdid them all.

Pretty adorable.

And these two were really cute. But they did get the last place.

You can see how far ahead of the rest they were!

Time for blindfolds.

What a special time!

“My meditation of him shall be sweet:
I will be glad in the Lord.”
Psalm 104:34

  1. It looks like you are having beautiful spring weather! Enjoy (we are expecting snow again in the upper Midwest). The older girls are getting so tall! It looks like you had a wonderful day. Thanks again for sharing your lovely pictures, Sarah.

    1. You’re welcome! It does seem like a spring winter storm is going on in other areas, but here, spring is dawning! ๐Ÿ™‚ I noticed before I posted that Abby is getting almost as tall as my mom. Wow!

  2. Those Baby Bjorn bibs are the best and very durable. We’ve tried regular flat cloth ones and all the food just falls on the lap. The plastic molded ones from Wal-Mart would always crack on the bottom so the liquid would run out. But the Baby Bjorn bibs work so well and have gone through 3 kids now with 2 still wearing them. 3 times a day times 365 days a year.We like them for sure.

  3. Sooooo much fun!! I know this has to take a lot of work and energy on the adultโ€™s end. Way to go!!! Something those kiddos will never forget. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Other than a person’s relationship with Jesus, there is nothing as important or fulfilling than spending time with your family while we have them to treasure. I love reading about the way your family spends time together, building sweet relationships and memories for all the generations.

    1. Amen, Kris. I totally agree. I am thankful for my family, my grandchildren being close and being able to spend time with them, and for their love for Jesus.

  5. How fun! I know the children enjoyed it so much. My parents do something similar but on a bit larger scale…each summer, they host โ€œCamp Cousinsโ€ for all their grandchildren for a week. They have crafts and activities for all the ages and set up tents in their backyard for the teens and tweens who want to stay overnight. It builds bonds between them and the grandkids and between the cousins and gives us moms a break from all but the youngest children. The last night is a big cookout for everyone, and we all have so much fun.

  6. This is one of my favorite posts! Looks like a lot of fun and great memories for all of you.

  7. Looks like the kids had a great time!! I am so fortunate that my mama and daddy invested time into my children. As a parent, you want your kids to prioritize and maintain those family connections as they get older and have lives of their own. Nothing makes me happier than when my twenty-year-old son goes and takes his Grandma to lunch, or my eighteen-year-old daughter stops by to chat and spend time with her simply because she has some extra time.
