Little Picnics!


One of our after swimming traditions of the summer has been our almost daily picnics. We used to go hang out on the grounds of Paprika's upcoming elementary school, but the past few weeks there have been people there...getting ready for (gasp!) school!

So, instead we have found a teeny little park near our house that nobody but us frequents. Whether it's something brought from home or a picnic in a bag from zee Golden Arches, it's always a good time. We eat together, then the girls play, then we all play hide and seek or our new favorite...treasure hunt!

Basically, treasure hunt involves the girls going through my purse, finding something of value, and then hiding it from me! ;-) We actually take turns, and because the park is so teeny, it's never too challenging for any of us. But the girls love it!


What is better to than being 5 years old and hanging out in your bathing suit all day? Maybe being 2 years old and hanging out with your best friend/big sister "Yaya" all day...

Or maybe being the mom and hanging out with these two all day. Have I mentioned how much I am going to miss Paprika when she goes to school next week? Homeschooling is looking better and better...
