Seth decided that he wanted to have a picnic for our special day together. So I began wondering what kind of picnic food I could make that would be easy to eat outside on a blanket. Yesterday, I saw Kami's idea of making monkey bread, and I knew it would be the perfect kid food for a picnic! Because I did not know you could make monkey bread with homemade biscuits, I've never made it here in Kenya.
So began our fun day together. First, we cooked. We both had to wear aprons, of course.
Notice his cheeks. Yeah, he was snitchin' sugary bites of biscuit every time he put one in the pan!
When the monkey bread was done, we all headed outside with a quilt, a coloring book, and some crayons.
Seth and I ate the yummy monkey bread while Brina enjoyed the wind in her hair. After our "meal", we colored pictures together. Brina got very interested in my crayon. I think she wanted to color too . . . or maybe she wanted to taste that crayon!
Then we took pictures of our pictures. Seth LOVES to use my camera. Hey, it has buttons to push!
Such a fun time together. It is "funner" with Daddy home, but I want my children to remember our special Thursdays. We can still have fun while waiting for Daddy to come home.
* Probably hotdogs for supper. Seth loves hotdogs, and I love how simple they are to cook!
