And when I say quiet, I really mean quiet! We decided to go to the park for a picnic and a little playtime. We were literally the only people there. And it was a Saturday too. Kind of surprised me!
The kids wanted it to be a “real” picnic, so I pulled out the picnic basket from the attic and grabbed a blanket.
Isn’t it a pretty quilt? It was hand stitched by my great-grandmother, Grandma Sims. It is crazy looking at the stitching on it. Each stitch is so tiny and perfect. She had some serious talent.
To make packing our basket easier, we just grabbed some subs from Subway.
I know, I should have carefully and lovingly crafted each sandwich and made homemade treats to go with it (please note the heavy sarcasm) – but that is just not the kind of mom I am :) And my kids love me for it :)
It was very yummy, quiet, and lots of fun. We hope to do it again soon!
