Charlotte is experiencing a bout of sunny spring weather. Itâ€™s perfect outside â€“ 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. Weâ€™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 â€“ all straight into the plastic tub. All we needed was two forks.
With some chips and hummus on the side.
Henryâ€™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 canâ€™t stand regular sunglasses. Ideas?
James tagged along, too. Maggie stayed at home (sheâ€™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 (Iâ€™m rediscovering how awesome slides areâ€¦) and on the swings.
Henryâ€™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.
