Since we've moved to this neighborhood, we've discovered one of the parks is just a few blocks away. Shawn and I have been walking a path that goes around a large pond for the past few months. Day before yesterday I decided we'd take a picnic with us.
The park has picnic tables around the pond but we chose to picnic on this shaded, large rock that overlooks the fountain.
I made us each one of our favorite cold cut sandwiches with mesquite smoked turkey, sliced monterey jack cheese, a little mayo and banana peppers, threw in some Fritos, and some fruit.
I had just bought this sparkling blueberry grape juice. I buy this every so often for the kids, but I snagged it for us to enjoy today. It is yummy!
Of course, we dined on some transferware plates! I can't help it, sorry. These are by Booth's, a pretty pattern with peonies and butterflies...pretty perfect for a Spring picnic, wouldn't you say? I have four left that are for sale HERE.
The weather could not have been more beautiful.
Graham joined us for our picnic. I feel like we are Grandparents that babysit him during the day. I am beginning to like this little fellow.
There were others enjoying the park that day as well, including this precious family.
Pick a day. Enjoy it, to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come. The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present, and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about it.
