PICNIC



















My kids LOVE to go on a picnic. So, Last week I took Weston and Grace across the road to the park to have one. They were so excited to just be trekking across the street. I packed bologna and cheese sandwiches, Doritos (Grace calls them burritos),Choc. milk for them (in mason jars), and stale Oreos (which were actually yummy) . I guess I was pretty hungry! :D Mike bought the picnic basket for me at an auction a couple weeks ago and it seems to be fairly sturdy and in good shape. Weston took the pictures of Grace and I for me. My Mom came over and took the other pictures of us. Weston kept wanting to make goofy faces and show food that was in his mouth. And Grace kept squinting, the sun was very bright!







It is sometimes too easy for me to get wrapped up in one thing or another and allow simple pleasures such as a picnic pass me by! My children will only be little once and I have to make a conscious effort to not let the duties of Motherhood overshadow time well spent with my children.
