Charlotte is experiencing a bout of sunny spring weather. It’s perfect outside – warm but not hot, breezy but not too windy. Spring has sprung in the South!
We took an hour off in the middle of the day to have a picnic and play at the park. We’ve been to the park for the last three days in a row. No sense in wasting such perfect weather!
To save on dishes, I simply topped some greens with grilled tempeh, carrots, cranberries, and a big glob of raspberry dressing – all straight into the plastic tub. All we needed was two forks.
With some chips and hummus on the side.
Henry’s lunch consisted of broccoli and roasted tomato slices with the skin removed.
Judging by how quickly he inhaled it, I would say it was pretty tasty.
Anyone have a recommendation for baby sunglasses? Henry refuses to wear regular baby sunglasses and rips hats off immediately, so he just wanders around with squinty eyes. I cringe every time I look at him, but he really can’t stand regular sunglasses. Ideas?
James tagged along, too. Maggie stayed at home (she’s afraid of 1) noise ; 2) large spaces; 3) strangers, so she is not a good picnic buddy).
We spent some time on the playground (I’m rediscovering how awesome slides are…) and on the swings.
Henry’s new trick is pointing at everything and nothing.
We also walked around the lake, marveling at the beauty that is the wonderful Queen City.
And then I found a tomato smashed into my hair, but that is a story for another day.
