Going on a picnic

This morning I promised my daughter that I'd look on the computer for some fun spring craft ideas we could do if it kept raining. After all, we're as a family still getting used to those Saturdays with dad at work.

Little did I know she had other plans.

While I was searching, she and her brother crept downstairs and, somewhere amist the fighting, determined we're going on a picnic today. The lunchbox is packed with three fruit roll ups, three boxes of raisins, three granola bars and a small box of cereal. The kids are dressed in record times never before seen on a weekday. Yep, it's 8 a.m., and we are picnicking today.

Sometimes you can have the best of plans, but sometimes listening to the hearts of little ones is best.

So get out and enjoy nature today.

Wishing you a happy end to this winter,
Going Green Mama

You can picnic when it rains too. As a treat, my mom would let us eat our lunch as a Picnic on the Floor. We put down newpaper/tablecloth on the floor and set it like a table. PB& J never tasted so good. Or I was easily impressed as a wee little kid.
