Hello?! This weather has been AH-MAZING, right? I’m so thankful that even through the craziness of school/work/life we’ve managed to get outside and enjoy the natural gifts that have been laid before us.
Last weekend, we made time to scamper over the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve (a fav of ours!) for a family picnic. Even Penny got to come with!
A family-self-portrait is never easy but here’s my favorite attempt from the day:
Ready to eat!
Eating her sandwich like a big girl. No small bites! (‘cause Mommy forgot to bring a cutting utensil)
Of course, Penny got her share of picnic snacks, too!
How adorable are B’s teeny Timberlands???
Food is done – time to run!!!
We love this beautiful park. It’s only 5 minutes from our place!
My little adventurer. I couldn’t resist taking a picture of her next to the sign saying this area is designed for 5 year olds and above! There’s a perfectly lovely toddler play area right next door, but she’s never been that into it. Always the explorer, just like her pal, DORA .
How sweet are they? Telling Daddy “I love you” over the playground phone!
Right after I took this pic, Penny had her turn down the slide. She’s the best!!!
Leaving the park is way easier when Daddy and Penny are with us. Usually tears and tantruming ensues, but who can resist an upside down exit?!
