So the tradition started. The first time we did it (2009), it was the most beautiful cold, crisp and sunny day. We went to Beecraigs Country Park, with our posh picnic (with proper mugs and plates - we don't rough it), took the family and went for a walk in the woods. We made a big pot of soup, some little sandwiches and baked a Red Velvet cake for the picnic.
Below are some of the photos from 2009, 2010 and 2012. We didn't go last year as Evan had just been born.
Heather was just a few weeks old here

Jenny all snuggly and cosy
Poor Ian felt awful but soldiered on - he's not in any pics. It turned out he had glandular fever and spent the next 6 weeks in bed.
