It is Sunday and it is summer. It is sunny, so a perfect day to go to the park and have a family day. The idea came late to our mind as it was already 11:00 am. So, what to take ? the faster thing to make with ingredients we had in the frigo was a cold pasta. Then I like my “Little Queen” eats vegetables and proteins so something more to take. That’s it! Chicken and courgette! all in small cube pieces to cook fast and also matches with the pasta with pesto sauce . In 30 minutes everything was cooked and packed in the plastic food containers to be used as dishes. For the picnic: Forks, fruits, crackers, plastic folding cups ,a bottle of water and tablecloth. For relax: a tent, 2 towels. For my “Little Queen”: A ball and soap bubbles . All packed in a rucksack. Bikes ready and here we go!. After few kilometers of having pedalled we reached the park and found a pleasant place under a tree. We took off our shoes, set the tent and then took out the food, ate and relaxed. Needless to say that not only us had the picnic idea, but the park is big enough to welcome many families and anyway have a private distance. I say not a perfect picnic just because I wasn’t ready with food I would have loved to make and take, we did’nt have the basket neither the red-white squared tablecloth you use to see in Tv or in ads, but who cares. It was a wonderful Sunday for so many reasons: we were barefoot walking on the grass, my baby was so excited with this picnic first experience, she imitated all what we did, sit with crossed legs , eat and try to have the dish hanging with a hand and with the other take the pasta with the fork ( not an easy task!). Fell my baby laughing and make somersaults together, see her admiring the leaves and flowers move with the gentle breeze, followinf some butterflies and watching some ants, feeling the singing and chirping of some birds. Admiring my baby discovering the nature was enough to make name my Sunday a “Wonderful Sunday in family”.
All that was taken for the picnic was taken back home, except the plastic bottle of the water. It was thrown away in the recycling plastic basket that was available in the park.
