Summer Picnic

A group I belong to had its annual picnic this past weekend.
It was lots of fun – especially because some of us brought the kids.
(No, Flipper and Sunny didn’t get to go : )

Diversity makes for great conversation
I don’t know about you but I like being around a diverse group.
Different ages, different income brackets.
Makes the conversation so much more interesting.

And that how it was here
One of the ladies trekked through Europe as an exchange student.
She shared wonderful stories.

A husband and wife team were talking about several of their companies.
We talked mostly about my Achilles’ heel: social media.
At the end of the conversation I can’t say I learned what goes with what platform.
But now I know how much I don’t know : )

Generations together
It’s wonderful to see so many generations together, sharing food, and having fun.
From people in their golden years to one-year-old Lilly Grace.
(Well, almost one year – the picnic was one day before her one year birthday!)
I started a “heated” debate with her mom – I said this was her first picnic with us.
Her mom corrected me, “This is the second picnic for Lilly Grace.”
I laughed because she was right – the little one was there a year before.
In her mommy’s tummy.

The star of the picnic
With a brownie in one hand and a watermelon slice in the other I’m walking around.
Lilly Grace is playing in the grass – and she is the center of attention.
This smiling-eyes, beautiful one-year old loves watermelon too.
And she is wearing it well : )
When I picked her up her clothes were soaking wet with watermelon juice!

Good conversation. Children playing.
Yummy brownies and watermelon.
A fun summer picnic!

Big or small, each project she worked on helped define the importance of gaining and sustaining a competitive edge in an increasingly complex business environment.

Business know-how, love of teaching and writing – all combined in 2006 to form OBI.
