This wonderful weather has inspired me with a new idea. A plan to help us eat better, be active, and save money. We are going to become creative picnic-ers! The boys absolutely love to eat outside. Especially if there is playtime to be had before or after. We have gone on three picnics just this week. We love going to parks so I've been scoping out future picnic sites. I thought it would be fun to document, by photo, each place we picnic in 2012. It can be as normal or creative as we want. The key is to have good food on hand and be ready to throw a lunch together when there is even a possibility that we might want to picnic that day. And a picnic doesn't have to be outside either. Just a few weeks ago I brought lunch with us to story time at the library and we sat on the carpet in the foyer afterwards. Today I knew we would be out running errands and I wasn't sure what time we'd be home so when I left the house at 9:30 this morning I had lunches with us just in case. If I have lunch with me, why stop somewhere and spend money?
Cool huh? I wonder how many we can do? 25? 50? 100? So far we're up to 3. (Not including our library trip because I didn't take a photo of it!)
