Impromptu picnic ala Cyan

Cyan decided we were going to have a picnic dinner today. She was completely convinced. So when she asked to make tea and sandwiches, I told her of course... thinking it would dwindle and the sandwiches would be eaten and tea forgotten minutes later. Oh no. I should know better with this girl by now.

This picnic basket is complete with mugs of hot tea covered with plastic bags. Fully 7 yr old style.

Of course, after all that work was put into it, how could I say no? So we headed out to the park and abandoned the regular menu for tonight, eating PB&J sandwiches, carrots and humus, Tim's potato chips, chocolate cookies, and hot tea.

She was pretty darned excited that she had made this all happen. We played for a while, put everything into the car, and took a nice long walk.

Cyan stepped in a puddle with no shoes on, she is not happy in this picture. Alex took the pic though and I thought it was a good one aside from the sad look Cyan has on.

And this picture is strait out of the camera. Can you believe his eyes? I just get lost in them.

How sweet of Cyan. You have a beautiful family. You're right, your son's eyes are amazing.

What a great day you guys had, and kudos to Cyan for making it all happen! Funny how kids get these ideas in their heads and just run with it. I think adults need to do stuff like that more often. Alex is quite the photographer too. He must get that from you!
