|A few times this summer, Jill and I were able to enjoy the weather around the Frederick region on an afternoon picnic.|
One of the picnics was at Baker Park in Frederick.
There were lots of people out, swimming in the public pool, running, biking, walking around the lake, watching and playing little league baseball.
We found a nice quiet piece of grass under a willow tree.
We enjoyed our food, read our books, took some pictures and relaxed.
Here are some more pictures from Baker Park.
Another picnic was at the Washington Monument State Park.
We took the short hike to the monument, read the plaques and took some pictures.
Then we got mobbed by a noisy, rambunctious scout troop. Again we found a nice quiet spot on the lawn and enjoyed our lunch.
Here are more pictures of the Washington Monument.
And the last summer picnic to mention is the Braddock Heights Ward picnic.
There was lots of good food, silly games, and general commiserating. We actually arrived late and left early to this one. Does that make the popular folk or the losers?
It was a pretty decent summer as far as the weather goes. It was nice to be able to just relax and soak in the outdoors once in a while. Now fall is quickly approaching as the temperature is steadily decreasing. Soon the 'mountains' nearby will be displaying the great fall colors.
