his first picnic

The weather was beautiful again today.
So, after Levi's nap I decided it was the perfect day for his first picnic.

We loaded up in the car and headed to the park.
We found a sunshine-y spot and spread out our blanket.

I think Levi thought it was pretty awesome to eat his lunch outside.
And I loved hangin' out with my little guy in the sunshine.

I had torn off some pieces of Levi's sandwich for him to eat...
because that's what I always do.

But today he decided he could handle the whole sandwich.
He looked like such a big boy eating his big sandwich.

After we finished eating Levi had to check out the whole park.
He loves exploring and being outside.

I'm pretty sure he thought he was in heaven.
And he loved watching the other kids playing.

He could have stayed there all day.
I think there will be many more picnics and park dates in our future.

But before we went home someone thought he needed a snack.
It makes you really hungry when you play so hard! :)

Did somebody go with you and take your picture?! If not, you are genius for taking timed photos (well, you're genius anyway for getting the photo regardless). There are SOOO many adventures where it's just me and my boys (thankful for hard working daddy, but sad when he can't join in on all of the fun things we do) and so there are never photos of me with the kids. Way to go!

our kids lOVE picnics at the park! I can't wait for our weather to warm up a bit so we can enjoy them again.
I like the look on Levi's face when he's watching the other kids play - total wonderment :)

Looks like he had a lot of fun. We had a picnic this week too and the kids had a great time exploring.

I love picnics with my kids. Do you have a remote for your camera? I'm curious how you got such wonderful self portraits.

He is just adorable. God bless him. Thinking of you all tomorrow on Cora's birthday. She is up in Heaven having a great birthday.

I can't believe how big he looks these days? I loved the photos of him eating his sandwich like a big boy. :) I hope the weather is warmer soon and there are many more picnic/park days in your future!

Beautiful pics once again! The first one made me a little sad :(
I have no idea why it hit me the way it did, but it was definitely missing another picnicker...I am sure she was watching over you and smiling.
