Big Hat and Goat Picnic

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of partaking in my first Big Hat and Goat Picnic.

Of course, there were big hats…

…and plenty of goats (they’re in the background, promise!).

But, let’s rewind a bit…

I put on some new bling for the special event – a bobble bracelet with lots of TCL blue. ;)

I didn’t know what to bring to the picnic, but I figured local eats are always a good choice.

I picked up some homemade pimento cheese and pita chips from Savory Moments at the local farmer’s market.

After meeting up with my friends, we headed out to the country for some fresh air and al fresco dining.

Our location of choice – a local farm area.

We had a lovely little spread and plenty of yummy food: tortilla chips, 7 layer dip, a variety of cheese, salami, olives…

After eating, things got a little crazy with a bunny suit.

Bet you’ve never seen a bunny do this before! Go yoga bunny, go!

Next, we headed out to meet some of the farm animals.

We made friends with a horse…

…and an inch worm.

Next up – a swinging bridge. And what do you do with a swinging bridge?

Have another photo-shoot, of course!

Work it.

Work it!

And why not some yoga in the creek? :)

We picked up boiled peanuts and fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies on the way home to complete our outdoor adventure.

Our afternoon at the farm was one of the most relaxing I’ve had in awhile. I must go back soon! It was the perfect place for a picnic and the weather couldn’t have been nicer.

Where is your favorite place to have a picnic?

Friday was a soup and sandwich kind of day. I had chili (3 bean) from Earthfare…

…plus a grilled cheese. Muenster on Great Harvest Whole Grain Goodness.

Seedy, nutty, ooey, gooey. Yum!

Hubby was grill master Friday night.

We had grilled corn, grilled shrimp, and steamed broccoli.

I did a quick spice rub but totally wish I could have remembered I had fresh lemons in the fridge! They would have been awesome squeezed over the grilled shrimp!

Hubby and I had movie night and watched Little Fockers. It wasn’t nearly as funny as the first, but what movie ever beats the first of a series? The only one I can think of is Shrek. lol

I have a REALLY fun post lined up for tomorrow morning. Today has been a long, but awesome day. I took hundreds of photos of a fun outing and can’t wait to share more! Check back tomorrow for the dets!

Can you think of any movies series where the sequel was better than the original?
