a picnic lunch
With just a week to go until school starts we've been trying to fit it all in....and needless to say cleaning the house has pretty much gone by the wayside...but today "Cinderella" (ME!!) got a wild hair up her butt to clean the "castle"...the troops helped for a bit in the morning, but when they were hungry for lunch I was on a major roll...and a tight time schedule to get stuff done....Cubby suggested a picnic and they got busy in the kitchen. The menu consisted of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, pretzels and oreos. yummy.yum.yum!!! They packed it up in my handy picnic basket and took off....T. claimed the hat he's wearing is his "lucky picnic hat"?????
...down the trail that runs behind the houses on our street.
It looks like we live in MAJOR farm country....but truly we don't!! This house near us just happens to have a few random shaggy cows that roam around....
Of course I had to follow them...and sneak a few pictures of their picnic...well, I got to the end of the trail, which is where I thought they'd set up camp and they weren't there. So I stopped and listened...and heard their conversation. I back tracked a bit and spied them in the woods. If you squint your eyes...you can almost make out all three of them in their little spot. I almost wanted to join them...but they were loving being out all alone...and I loved it for them!!
