Each year, Rebecca makes a special print for our Family Picnic
that highlights one of the outrageous games we play.
Here are a few of her prints.
It's the original idea for the Piñata Backpack! When Azure❤️ was four, she got to take a swing at her Uncle Benny as the Human Piñata.
Our mud pit at the Family Picnic was 20 feet wide and a place for epic one-on-one battles to cross the wooden bridge.
Imagine 30 people, each with a balloon. You're out when someone pops your balloon. This print captures the Indominable Dave whom no one could beat.
Musical chairs is all-out war at the Family Picnic. If you're a kid and you make it to the top 10, we're going to treat you like an equal...
Take a deep breath, start howling, and take off running. The winner is the person who runs the farthest without going silent.
Our slip and slide for the Family Picnic was 250 feet long. You could see it from outer space (using Google maps). Each year, Tara, Ben, and Nick would take the first ride down. We told the kids it was to make sure we'd soaped it up for them to follow. Of course, winning that first run was the one that mattered.
After a long day of highly competitive games, we'd end the Family Picnic with a game of Midnight Werewolf. Nothing like eating everyone just before putting the kids to bed.
Perhaps the most brutal game at the Family Picnic: How long can you hold your head under water. Of course, we filled the bucket with ice so it was freezing! The best part was the showdown style. You didn't have to beat a particular time to win, just the other people next to you with their heads in their own buckets.
