Well personally I think the other side of picnic point is better too - yes it is much quieter!
Plus, again personally I think it is much easier to just feed your own kids...rather than bring a plate but that's just my opinion!
Also, I think any time from 10am onwards...you get there when you can - we all know how difficult some kids can be in the mornings!
Have a great weekend
