Gemma loves to eat outside (as long as no bugs are in sight), but so far this year it’s been mostly too cold or too hot so a breezy warm day was just what we needed! There’s something about the excitement of being outside that means she will eat pretty much anything I put in front of her, so I figure this summer this will be a good way to introduce more raw veggies and dip under the guise of “fun”.
She really is lovely company, my little conversationalist, and with Kristopher napping we didn’t have to worry about little fingers snatching the food or little mouths full of grass, which made for a nice relaxing snack time! Now that she’s given up napping we’ll have to start doing more lunches outside since there won’t be such a rush to get the food down and get her into bed…we’ll save that for dinner time :)
What a beautiful idea! It is great that you have made a good idea out of a not so good one (the fact that now she is not napping…!!!) Make the most out of your summer!!! AND… I agree with your mom… you are a good mommy!!!
You’re such a good mommy :)
Picnics are a hit with us too!
Fun! Today looks like another great day for a picnic! :)
