Birthday Wishes Number 2

I want to go to the park for a picnic. I go to the store and pick up some supplies. I head for the butcher's counter, and pick up some prepared Shish Kabob, both beef and chicken(I love the stuff! It makes me happy), and some hot dogs for the kids. Then I go to the deli counter and get some sides: potato salad and maybe some macaroni salad. After that I head for the produce department, pick up a veggie tray. The kids go through those like they are nothing. I make a special stop in the bakery. I order two cakes. The first one is small, maybe a quarter sheet size. But it is decorated beautifully with my name and pretty flowers on it. The second cake is much larger, a full sheet size. It has no decorations, but I asked for extra buttercream icing. After picking up those items, I grab some sodas and chips and a giant plastic tarp. Everything else I need I have at home already.

After making all the necessary preparations, I pack the lunch stuff into the car, followed by packing my family in as well. We drive a short distance, to a park near-by with barbecue pits and large grassy areas and a play area for the kids. I let the kids run free, and keep an eye on them while I keep an eye on my husband who is trying to light the charcoal in the barbecue. he coals are lit, and he grills a wonderful luch for all of us. The kids eat, and then run off again.

In the meantime, while my husband is watching kids, I set out the tarp. I grab some heavy rocks to pin down the corners. I pull the giant cake out of the car, take it out of it's box, and lay it down in the middle of the tarp. I call the kids over, and my husband. When everyone gets there, I grab a handful of cake and throw it at my kids. Being the little brats they are, they quickly get into the mood and start going at each other and at me with the cake. My husband backs away hoping the kids won't notices him, but the babies have motion sensors on the back of their heads. They turn, almost like one, and go at him, icing on their hands and everything. He tries to run away, but while he is distracted with the kids, I fling a handful of cake right at him and get him smack on his chest. He gives me his "you-asked-for-it" look, and grabs whatever cake he can off his chest and throws it at me. I squeel and duck. After that, a full blown cake fight ensues.

The food fight lasts a while longer. Then after the cake is gone and all the frosting is all over, I take some time to clean the kids the best I can without finding a hose to use. My husband and I clean up the picnic area, and then we head home.

While not as extravagant as my other birthday wish, this one is just as satisfying for me.

It's starting to look like this wish is more than likely going to come true. We're still looking at our options. Only have a couple more days to figure that out.
