Outdoor Eating

Day 106.

It was the first of three (hopefully) beautiful days in a row, and I wanted to take advantage of that. We had Bible Study this morning from 10:15-11:45 and so we brought along a picnic lunch so we could hit the park afterward and sit amongst the grass to eat.

I am grateful for picnics.

It was officially the first outdoor picnic of the year. I am all about picnics. I love having food accessible in fun locations so we can interrupt fun to eat only as long as needed. I love the happiness that easily comes along with sitting in the grass on a crisp clean quilt and eating together. I love sitting in a circle with my kids - at their level, and enjoying the food even more than we would at our table at home. There is a peace, a calm, a life to picnics.
