The boys did not have school today (a PD day of some sort) and at lunch time Owen wanted to do something special... he asked if we could have a picnic in the living room. It was very cute. He went and got his Lightning McQueen blanket from his room and he and Aiden spent several minutes smoothing it all out flat. Olivia thought we should have more blankets and dragged a couple comforters out too.
Then Owen took me into the kitchen and informed me what to make for the picnic.
We had carrots, apples, cheese, hot dogs without buns, peanut butter sandwiches cut into triangles (this was a key step because apparently you have triangle sandwiches on picnics) and then we had ice cream floats for dessert.
I failed to get a decent picture... the boys just looked at me and rolled their eyes when I told them I wanted to take a picture. Olivia ignored me completely.
It would seem I take too many pictures of them... according to Aiden anyway. He said "Moooommm, we are just eating lunch you know!!". I told him I knew that and wanted a picture anyway. He said "fine" with a sort of disgusted sigh. And that lovely photo is the result. They really were having fun even though they refused to smile nicely for the picture :)
Unfortunately for them I have no intention of putting the camera away anytime soon :)
