Picnic in the Park

The other evening we crossed off an item on our Summer Bucket List and had a picnic in the park.

We did a little bit of “picnic”-ing…

but we did a lot more of this.

We learned that toddlers tend to run…

a lot…when they are not strapped in at meal-time.


But we did take time to stop and smell the flowers…

and observe the bugs.

And, of course, we had to do a little plane spotting.


Curious Little Brother.

Energetic Big Brother.

Open-armed Mama.

Proud Papa.

Lonely Blanket.
