Perfect May afternoon for a picnic

We did a lot of gardening on the weekend, so today was a rest day for our weary backs.  We packed a picnic lunch and set off for our favorite spot beside the Unmighty Mississippi River. 
We enjoyed the mirror image on the water while we munched our lunch.

After lunch we walked along the water's edge, and discovered four family of geese.  One family had eight babies, two had six, and one had five.  They all kept together in their family groupings, and delighted us with there antics.
AC got as close as he could to snap a few pics when this family came ashore.

From this vantage point we looked back towards our picnic spot, which was just to the right of the redish/brown  building you can see off in the distance in this pic.
It was a fabulous day for a picnic.
