Spontaneous Picnic

family, out and about, Svara, Talisa

One day last week all things came together unexpectedly and it turned out to be the perfect time for a picnic!

1. I had picnic-worthy calzones already baked, ready to be eaten

2. It was not too hot out and there was a slight breeze

3. It was the perfect time of day and we were all itching to go outside.  

4. I know that Svara has been wanting to go on a picnic for awhile, she loves picnics!

So a picnic it was!!

Lesson 1: Keeping a 10 month old ON the picnic mat is a losing battle.


Lesson 2: Letting your 10 month old help herself to the container of chopped cucumbers leads to chopped cucumbers e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e.


Lesson 3: Roselle juice makes a nice pink moustache


Lesson 4: Always bring bubbles on a picnic!

Refer back to lesson 1

Lesson 5: Never miss the opportunity to pose with a cat



It was a great spontaneous family outing!   We often go out for a walk in the evening (well, a couple times a week at least) to this playground, but we hardly ever happen to have picnic food on hand, so this was a nice opportunity.  Hopefully we’ll do it again soon!
