Cheesequake Picnic

Burgers!We haven’t visited Cheesequake State Park since my last birthday, which happens to be during the month of August.

Anna being cute without trying.The weather has finally gotten nice outside — although in this area of the country it goes instantly from cold to hot — so we decided to do a small family picnic.

Arosha with grandparents.In the morning we actually set out to visit Staten Island Zoo, but Arosha really wanted a picnic, so we figured — why not.

Alёna.We like Cheesequake because it’s really close to us (relatively) and it always has a bunch of free space in picnic areas — no matter the hour.

Us.We called my parents, dropped by a supermarket to get some burger ingredients and off we went.

Anna enjoying the burger.Alёna did a great job driving us back and forth — numerous highway changes, bridges and so on. She is still quite afraid, but the best way to cure the fear of driving is to drive.

Grillin'.Burgers came out really well — as they always do on a real grill. It probably is not possible to screw them up. Our recipe is super simple — non-frozen patties, sharp cheddar cheese and a slice of sweet onion.

Arosha vs corn.Everyone enjoyed it. Even though Arosha likes burgers our Anna ate more. She is a real big time meat eater, unlike Arosha.

Playing after lunch.Then we took a short hike through the woods, but it was getting real hot, so after collecting a full bucket of treasure (cones) we went home.

Grandma handing out treats to kids.And that was our day. Good family fun for people who live in apartments. Probably less exciting for house owners with their own personal grills.

More grilling.
