today we had a picnic.
kort was beyond thrilled to finally get out of the house after three days of being subject to mom's overly erratic "stitch protection program." (in my defense, emergency rooms are a nightmare and i'll be darned if i'm going to let him bump/poke/bonk/slice those stitches open on anything and end up back in the hospital for round two!)

the weather was perfect.

the food was delicious.
kortland found all sorts of "treasures" (as he always does).
i even had to work (like, really hard)
to talk him out of a set of keys that had been left on a nearby table.
"finders keepers, losers weepers." he insisted over-and-over-and-over again.
{you see, he gets pretty attached to his park-scavenging conquests.)
but, in the end, stacey bet him that he couldn't run to the table,
put the keys back,
and get back to our blanket before she counted to ten.
kort never could resist challenge,
especially a challenge that begins with "i betcha can't..."
i have such smart friends.
(and really white legs...as it turns out.)
what did you do today?
the girls at communal global want to know...so tell us!

Picnics are my most favorite things : ) I LOVE the picnic blanket and your white legs : ) When we were on vacation last week we went to a lake one day. I was like 'Dad I have never seen legs that white in all of my life, and my sister betsy was like....'ummmmmmmmmmmm, look down at yours.' sure enough. I was just as pale as my dad.

Yay for picnics! Awesome food, btw...now I've gotta go raid my fridge, since I inexplicably got really hungry all of a sudden ;D

Glad Kort is feeling better!
