It was a hot day, the kids were getting hungry and restless and we did not feel like cooking. We had promised each other a sushi dinner sometime but going out would not be a smart move the way this day was going. Instead we decided to whip up some healthy snack plates for the kids (all stuff we had in the house or garden), and picked up some take out sushi for us. After the food was ready we just threw down a blanket, and TA-DA, an instant picnic in the backyard. Some other time we will have a picnic in the park or beach but on this day nothing could be better than hanging out in the backyard.
Sometimes simple ideas are the best.
