Family has a "Wonderland" Picnic Again After 14 Year Break

Patty and Jim Suiter, both 84, missed a fall family picnic in 1975.  After which they started their own picnic at Lake Manawa in Council Bluffs.  This event took place annually until 2001.  At this time a family member grew ill and they had to stop the picnic.  That is until Simone Benson, their daughter, started it up again last year.  Some of the things to do there included having a bonfire, hot cocoa, hot apple cider, hot dogs, playing baseball, and made up games of their own.  To everyone there it is a great way to take a break and get away outdoors during the winter months.  Have you or do you and your family have a similar tradition in the winter?
