Porch Picnic

One of our favorite things to do in the summer...porch picnics. Lily and I will often have our lunch or dinner out on the porch with our picnic blanket. I love how easy to please she is (most of the time)...this particular evening she must have told me AT LEAST 5 times "Mommy, this is the best picnic ever!" We also enjoyed some popsicles for dessert. In Lily's words "Dere sugar free, so dere healfy!" (Baby Spot and Baby Ducky were also guests at our picnic - of course. But they didn't eat much).


















Although they are calling for cooler temps this week, we know we will be back to porch picnics in no time! Happy Monday everyone!




I'd also like to say a big CONGRATULATIONS to my friend Kim - today, she and her beautiful family, are one year closer to their sweet Isabella! It's a long wait...but well worth it. (Stop by and give her some love.)

We love picnics too. We tried to go out for one the other day, but it was soooo windy, there was just no way. I'm glad the Spot and the ducky were able to make it to the picnic. Probably wouldn't have been the same without them. LOL!!

Awww, Nikki!

We love porch picnics, too!! You are so right!! They are easy to please! Our last picnic was Anna sitting on a bucket and eating at a small wiggly table. She loved it!

Lily is beautiful..:)

I had to laugh out loud - we have porch picnics all the time!! Nothing like having good friends on the blankie for good eatin' (lucky spot and ducky!!)

As always, Lily's smile makes my heart dance.

Have a wonderful week!

What wonderful pictures of Lily-bug. I just love her enthusiasm for life and what can compare to a fun porch picnic? I am so glad you girls had a great time. :)

Ok, in response to your comment on my blog. I have found that I can splurge every once in a while. Last week I was really bad though. I cringed as I got on the scale this morning, then found I had lost another pound. The workouts (aerobic and weights) increase your metablolism. That's all I can figure, because I haven't given up the sweets....just not as much, or as often. I will say, I do not do fastfood anymore. If we go to McDonalds, I get a salad.

How fun is that a picnic in the yard. Glad you are enjoying some warmer weather. Lily is cute as ever.

Hugs,
Carla
