The week before my accident
we went for a family picnic
to enjoy the unusual
80 degree weather
we have been having.
Of course I did not check the
weather the day before
after promising a picnic to the kids
and the extra warm weather was over.
But we still had a good afternoon.
I am now especially glad we
went ahead and had the chilly
picnic because it was probably my last at
the park until summer.
We had turkey and cheese sandwiches
and I cut them in
Nixon’s exact words were
“Mommy, your the best cook ever!”
(somehow cutting sandwiches into
triangles make them taste better)
Jared tossed goldfish into
Roman’s and Isla mouth.
They enjoyed being introduced to
the new game as much
as he enjoyed hitting them
in the face with food.
It was Lottie’s 1st picnic!
She slept the ENTIRE time.
We played hopscotch…
and other games around the park.
Roman was just excited to
We walked down to the
lake to feed the ducks!
Roman loved the ducks and birds!
Nixon was scared and stayed with Lottie!
I tried getting a mommy
picture, but they would not
Jared ended up taking Lottie to the
car because of the wind.
The girls wanted to
model for the camera.
(I promise I did not stage this,
they love to make expressions
and see themselves on camera)
I’m not too sure
about these two??
Roman let me snap one picture!
We ended the picnic
with kids climbing on tree stumps.
(it doesn’t take much to entertain them)
We had a fun family afternoon.
I look forward to many
picnics this summer.
(I might just have to have a few
in the living room before then)
