It wasn't so bad as most of the picnic was under shelter where everyone huddled and ate so we remained dry. It was unfortunate though that the rain prevented the main activity, the concourse, from taking place. When you go to a car club picnic you kind of want to see all the cars but the rain put a damper on that from happening.
The event had many kids activities. Chloe was eager to get her face painted, as were all the other kids. After 1.5 hours in line, Chloe finally got her face painted. I am so glad that the lady painting faces was really good and didn't just pencil in a little design on the kids faces. She really painted them, so it made the wait understandable and bearable. Chloe chose to be a cheetah.
While in the line for face painting we met another family in the club who lives northwest of us and has a daughter from China. They in turn introduced us to another family that lives in our town and are members of the car club. The family that lives in our town have a daughter in high school (can we say "babysitter"!!!).
In the end the rain prevented a lot of activities from happening, but we got to meet some new people and Chloe got her face painted!
