A hot day but some members of the Tran Clan family went to have a picnic at Mt Annan (Bowden Centre). There’s a nice lake there with tables and plenty of shade. The kids had fun riding on their bikes and having a water gun fight. I was outnumbered 1-4 but that didn’t stop me from getting them all wet. All the grandkids even sprayed their “a kong” (not sure how you spell it but it’s grandpa). It was a good start to the year having a picnic by spending time with the family. I was even amazed to see my mum riding a bike – she did sort of fall when she got on it but probably because of the uneven grass.

Family time – the purpose of the picnic was to be able to spend some time with my parents and for the kids to also spend time with their grandparents. Initially, my dad wanted to do some renovations at home but I had to encourage (actually made him feel guilty) by telling him that the grandkids wanted to spend time with him and play. It was good to see that he was a good sport by getting wet during the water gun fight and him even playing charades with us. I know my parents are getting older and don’t know how much time they have left on this Earth but getting them to spend time with their kids and grandkids is becoming more of a top priority in our life.
