Birthday Picnic

Picnic's are fun, especially when it's your granddaughter's 15th birthday
Sunday was Anna's Birthday, the whole family (except for three that had to work),
packed a lunch and went to Sprewell Bluff on the Flint River.
It's only a few miles from where I live.

This is at the overlook.

The Flint River is a 344-mile-long (554 km)[1] river in the U.S. state of Georgia. The river drains 8,460 square miles (21,900 km2) of western Georgia, flowing south from the upper Piedmont region south of Atlanta to the wetlands of the Gulf Coastal Plain in the southwestern corner of the state. Along with the Apalachicola and the Chattahoochee rivers, it forms part of the ACF basin. In its upper course through the red hills of the Piedmont, it is considered especially scenic.

The children always enjoy playing in the water,
although it was too cold to get in on this day.

Joshua did manage to get his feet wet!

They did remember to bring their football so they could play.

Some people where going for a ride in their canoe's . The river is wider than it looks in the photo.

We all enjoyed the afternoon.

Happy Birthday, Anna!

This was a joyful day, and we rejoiced in it for many are our blessings!
