I remember the days when my family, relatives, and friends would gather at a local park for hours to celebrate a birthday or the end of a soccer season. Parents would bring grills, coolers, tables, blankets, and soccer balls. It’s been some time since I’ve been to a park bbq. It seems most gatherings happen in someone’s home or backyard. Don’t get me wrong – this is nice and convenient, but it’s just not as carefree as a park. At a park, kids can run around with reckless abandon and everything is casual including how long to stay, what to bring, who to bring, etc. With this in mind, we decided to bring our friends and family together for a classic picnic at Harnett Park in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque.
Entertainment included 2 bag toss games, a funky oversized frisbee, playground, oversize jump rope, and kickball.
Everyone brought food to share and had a relaxing time.
When is the last time you kicked back in a park?
