Today was one of those days that nothing was getting done--kids weren't napping, the dishes in the sink were overflowing, coffee wasn't making itself, and I was downright exhausted! Though the sun was shining bright in the sky, I had trouble finding the motivation to get up and do something productive. Then it occurred to me that in a few short years my kids will be in school and I'll no longer be able to justify not making money. Instead of enjoying time at home with my kiddos on such a beautiful afternoon, I'll probably be sitting in some stuffy office or classroom. So, we did the only logical thing to do in our wonderfully green and shady backyard.

We had a picnic!

With chips!

And ice cream!

It was lovely. :)


  1. Beautiful. And I would like to point out that blanket has been involved in lots of picnics, and there are plenty of photos of you lying on that blanket when you were a bitty babe, too!

  2. Sometimes the best plan of action is a picnic!

    What a fabulous way to spend the day.....these kind of activities will be wonderful memories for your children!!!!
