A Picnic Is No Picnic.

I couldn't handle looking at that last post anymore, so today we had a picnic. We planned it just right so Pedro could join us for lunch. Sheesh! You almost forget how much work it is to prepare. A Ton! From the time I woke up this morning I went to work prepping for the afternoon.

I baked bread, my new obsession.
honey wheat and oat bread
I made my favorite salad.
so good, so easy.
I made sandwiches, ran to the grocery store to get drinks and dessert,and we were off just three and a half hours later!
We got to the park and Mason was already starving. He'd play for a few minutes and then run back to grab a bite.
Pedro drove in a few minutes later. He ran around with the kids to keep warm since it was freezing.
We ate, played

played some more.
And then we were all headed out. Pedro back to work and us back home for naps.
We two.

It was all good fun, but next time? I am totally going to Subway.

I'm diggin' your new layout and the way you can scrunch up the archives is enough to make me consider abandoning my old girl.

Wow! What a great picnic you guys had! It's so great that Pedro was able to have lunch with you guys! Some of my fondest memories of my childhood are of the times my Dad took the time to play with us and just be with us!

You guys are awesome!

P.S. That salad looks deeeeeeeeeeeelish!!!
