2013 MPAK Picnic - One of the Best Ever

The 14th Annual MPAK Picnic was held on May 25, 2013 at the Laguna Niguel Regional Park, Laguna Niguel, CA.  The park is a very bautiful place with lots of trees, playgrounds, shelters, and open areas.  The picnic was attended by around 150 people, and there were MPAK groups from the Valley Area, the LA Area, the Orange County Area, and the San Diego Area.  There was a special visit by a family all the way from Seattle.  I am grateful that so many showed up despite the conflicting schedule with the Memorial Day weekend.

Not everything turns out perfect, including this cake with "Picknick".  The cake was brought by Emile and Jenny Mack, as they most likely got this Hawaiian cake from a cake store.  We had a lot of fun with this cake, but  what a delicious cake it was!

Joseph Jo and Brian Shin manned the BBQ station, and the BBQ received a lots of compliments.
Lots and Lots of great foods.

A game of pole building that tested the creativity of the kids.
And then there was the traditional 'Rope-Pull' game.
Mothers got together to talk about their children and adoption experiences.
