While celebrating active aging week we decided to have an extraordinary outing. We went to fairyland for the day and 17 residents and some families joined us, along with staff of course. The residents watching the toddlers at the park was priceless. We had our lunch there and enjoyed fantastic weather.
We all had the best time at the lake. Peanut butter sandwiches, fruit, drinks and Oreo cookies never tasted so good. There is something about being in the fresh air, bird watching, and watching children play and the occasional dog walking by that tugs at your heart strings.
This week was jammed packed with programs to fit everyone. The walk to Lake Merritt was so much fun. It was a beautiful day and everyone enjoy it very much. Jay was the leader of the group and he did an amazing job. Thanks Jay!
