Picnic Fun & a Winner!

                                                                Hello everyone,
                               What a beautiful day we had here today and to make it even better
                           there was no school so Abby and Olivia were able to come for a fun
                           indoor picnic.

                                       Milk and cookies were the order of the day.

                                     The picnic table has a chalk top which the girls love as they
                                     love to draw. and it wipes off easily so they can start all over

                                               Abby stopped to feed her bunny ~ cute!

               This child size picnic table is very well built with hand sanded untreated spruce and
               rounded corners. The top has a special exterior chalk board paint that wipes off                      easily ~ perfect!

                                     I think Olivia did a very good job drawing her bunny!

                                                          Abby was right into it also.
                                A little tablecloth dresses the table up for their picnic.

                 There was lots of giggles as blowing bubbles seems to be lots of fun too!
                            So, just to let you know if you have little ones who would enjoy
                            a picnic table like this one, they are made here on Prince Edward
                            Island by East Coast Chalk Tops so you can order one too.
                              email or phone 902-218 4093.

                            We were fortunate to have one donated for our Downton Abby Tea
                             fundraiser and it raised $120(thank you, Valerie) ~  thank you so much
                            Evan Ceretti and Vaughn Murphy for your generosity! Check out their                                          website as they have other great gifts as well and Christmas is
                             coming soon!
