Yesterday Punk had his very first picnic with his "friends". He asked me to help him lay out a blanket on the floor and to "get the food out of the grill". His "grill" being my husband's new footstool with a lid that opens to store blankets. So, of course I helped and I layed out all of the "food". The "food" consisted of a few Peek-A-Boo blocks, a couple of Hotwheels, a book, and his little fanny pack that he got at a friend's birthday party last week (they had a Dora Adventure and that was their "backpack").

After laying out all of the food he starts laughing at me and says, "Mommy, that's not food!" and he picked up his backpack and keeps on laughing. I asked him what it was and he said "It's my backpack!!" And continues to laugh!!

Uhh...okay. I was supposed to know that the books and trucks and blocks were food, but the backpack wasn't. I guess that's why he's the 2 1/2 year old and I'm the mom. His imagination is much better than mine!

So a few minutes later he comes and asks for something to drink. "But don't forget something for Tigger and Baby!" he says.

I looked to see what he was talking about and there was my sweet little boy sitting on the floor with his half-sister's baby doll on one side of him and Twinkletoes bouncing Tigger on the other. Him and his "friends" were having a picnic and it was the cutest thing I've ever seen!

I wish I'd have taken a picture without him in it to show! It was really sweet!!
