Good Day for a Picnic

Tuesday we took the opportunity to catch up with Dan & Lin again before heading out on our road trip.  We met up at Panera Bread where we coincidentally ran into another fellow Ginna worker and friend Wendy and her daughter Elaina.  Wendy has been facing her own battle and looked amazing!  Wendy, so nice to see you again, and Elaina, great to meet you.

For a change of pace, we took our lunches down the road to Webster Park to get outside and get some fresh air.  With Rochester weather we have to take advantage of every opportunity to get outside.  Although it seemed warm enough as we arrived, by the end of lunch we were all ready to start moving around again.

Over lunch Dan and Lin told a story of having chocolate martinis on vacation.  Later we all came to the realization that although it was only about 3 PM, there was nothing holding us back from a martini now.  We made a short drive down Lake Rd to Hedges where we all kicked back and enjoyed a couple drinks except Dan, who unfortunately had to work.

    Bret- I just love the photo of you and Shannon on the swings! It tells a story in itself! Great shot to whoever captured that moment!!

    I agree with Cousin Mario. Many of the pictures of you with Shannon have truly touched my heart and REALLY DO TELL A STORY. Some people go a lifetime without having what you both have together, so bask in it b/c it is truly a blessing! Enjoy this beautiful day, Bret and Shannon!
