spring picnic

Today we had our first picnic of the year!

Mia was entranced by the half-frozen lake and found all sorts of natural treasures to play with and a few to take home.  Had I dressed Anna in more appropriate attire, she could have had a blast, too…unfortunately, I had her dressed in a way-too-cute-to-get-stained outfit.  Needless to say, her exploring was minimal and she spent most of our picnic nursing in the Ergo, which of course was perfectly fine with me.

Building confidence while Mama holds her breath…

Nursing and snuggling while big sis explores…

Examining a tiny iceberg from the lake…

Nature’s treasures…

Water in the lake–a sure sign of spring!
