I was staring at a basket of laundry, willing it to put itself away, when I heard, “Mommy, will you take a walk with us?”
Looking at the clock, I saw it was almost lunch time.
“Sure, Sweetie. You guys wait on the back porch and I’ll make lunch to take with us,” I answered, leaving the basket of laundry for the cleaning fairy to put away. (She hasn’t been here in a while; anyone know where she’s at?)
I made a few p.b.&j. sandwiches, tossed some grapes and bell pepper slices in a baggie, tossed in an almost empty bag of pretzels and filled a bottle with water.
My picnic partners were ready and waiting on the back porch.
Like so many picnics, we wound up at the pond.
Notice the clothing change? Yep, I actually thought ahead of time for once and grabbed a change of clothes for my daughter and some shorts for the little guy.
It is simple moments like a picnic with my babies that I am thankful for this week. I’m looking forward to many more of them this spring and summer.
