Fifth Anniversary Picnic

Since we just arrived home a week ago from our big anniversary trip, we decided to skip the dinner out/date night thing on our actual anniversary and just hang out together as a family. We packed a picnic (following some scrumptious recipes for wraps and a melon/tomato salad from Real Simple-- love that magazine) and headed to Mirror Lake/Twin Lakes Park in Eden Park (not sure what the actual name of this particular park is, but it is another thing we love about Cincinnati).

After about a 3 minute rain shower, post-dinner, we took Cate to feed some of the ducks-- she loved it!
And soon what was a few ducks...
...turned into a lot of ducks.
Cate was sure to chase them all back into the pond though.
Cate and Daddy discussed the finer points of drinking from a park water fountain.
And then we ended with a little impromptu photo shoot of our favorite subject.
I think one of the things I love best about this park are its views.
The Big Mac Bridge.
The River.
The view across the river and up one of Covington, Kentucky's streets.
It was the perfect way to end an evening celebrating 5 wonderful years of marriage.
