The girls have free access to our yard, but for reasons unknown to me, Greysen has been disinterested in playing outside lately.
So on this day, when they were toes deep in mud and muck and I didn’t want to pull them inside to eat lunch, I grabbed a bit of food and brought it outside to the girls.
This unusual departure from our lunch routine was just the break the girls needed to keep them playing. Their food may have been a little crunchy from their not-so-clean-hands, but they didn’t mind.
Right back to play! Eating outside has been just the thing to keep the girls looking forward to heading outside and keeping them playing.
Picnics are a regular part of our lives, but spontaneous outdoor lunches definitely need a place too.
