Picnic Under the Trees

Some days you want to get out of the house, even if you don't really want to go for a long drive anywhere. On those days, a little picnic is in order... and yesterday was just such a day.

I packed a light and healthy lunch, grabbed a big tote bag to throw it all in, and off we went to a nearby park that's set along a portion of river, under some nice big trees.

The cicadas were humming, the sun was beaming down way up above the tree tops, and the sound of the river was a soothing backdrop to our little late afternoon meal. We had our e.e. cummings book of poetry with us for some entertainment.
Toenail polish is quite chipped after Mexico!

The little scenes around us were mesmerizing, too... little flowers, butterflies swerving and dipping around us, and the scent of distant barbecues from other people's lunches.

All in all, it was a lovely afternoon! We plan to have several more picnics this summer... especially after the success of our first one. Hope you have a wonderful day today. xox
