Rissa Roo’s Spring Picnic Spectacular Or How I Finally Met Bette

Ok so it’s been over 10 days since the picnic and I’m finally getting around to writing about the best day of my life so far. Now I know that you only want to hear about the picnic so ill cut to the chase.


(Leanne and Rissa)

My mom, step-dad and I all drove down to the city the morning of the picnic. After finding the park, eating lunch and changing we still arrived at the picnic about 45 minutes early, so we walked the other way in the park to go to the bathrooms and by time we got back, they were finished setting up and were checking other people in. We walked up to the table gave them out names and got the tags for our table number, to my dismay I was seated at the same table as my parents. We were at table 5, Bette was at Table 25 and all the other Betteheads were at tables 41 and 42, they couldn’t have put farther away!! But I sucked it up so as not to piss my mom off. Read More
