After a long, hot morning on a soccer field, the boys were only interested in relaxing when we returned home. They quietly settled on the couch watching The Goonies while I prepared lunch. Instead of calling them into the kitchen to eat, I decided to surprise them with an indoor picnic lunch! Big-A grabbed a big blanket and set it up in front of the tv in the family room. I brought them their lunch and they got comfy. We NEVER eat in front of the tv, so this was a very exciting moment!

I'm not used to this at lunch time...SILENCE...for the next 30 minutes. It was heavenly! And the boys had so much fun. I will definitely treat them to indoor picnic lunches again. I can't think of a better way to keep the summer fun going, with fall right around the corner!
Two happy boys :)
Simple surprises are so much fun!
Kids love life's simple pleasures. Why not turn a standard lunch at home into an indoor picnic! It's a fun break from the ordinary, and your kids will LOVE it
