Want a fun idea for the last week of summer?
Have a picnic for dinner!
One day I decided to cook dinner early, and we had dinner in a local park. I didn’t tell the children where we were going, & when we got there, they were so surprised!
I packed a blanket, water, dinner, plastic utensils, napkins, plastic plates, 1 white garbage bag, hand-wipes, cut up fruit, bug spray, & flashlights for the kids.
It was such a great evening, & even better when the Ice Cream truck came by!
For the working mom, as long as you have an address, order dinner from a local pizzeria, or restaurant you love that delivers! Ask them to pack utensils, napkins & condiments & just pack a blanket. Note, most parks have picnic or chess tables to sit at too, which can turn into your own personal dinner table.
I have learned that it is the, “little” things in life that are what is most memorable. Spending time with your child & doing something special, is priceless!
Enjoy your picnic!
Take it from a Mom Who Knows
