Last night we decided, no errands. Leave the house A MESS and go out and go for a walk and take a picnic lunch along because we knew the weather would be absolutely sunny and warm. So, we were ready. Packed up and got on the road by 9 in the morning. We walked a 3km loop around a local lake, got our picnic lunch out and ate it together under a picnic seating area (covered) and then the kids (well just 5 of them) played and had a blast at the park there! Nothing better than a different park. I fed Coco on the park bench in the GLORIOUS HOT sun. We gave them 5 minutes notice and headed back in the van.
We wished we had more room for our stroller. Cliff wore Coco in the Bjorn, and for about half the walk I had Caroline up on my shoulders. We then on our way home discovered our AC has given out. Nice. And, then we drove by some auto dealerships and looked at those 11 seater vans. They would be perfect to put all our gear in there. We wouldn't need to collapse a stroller and it would fit. Our current van does not hold the stoller and all of the gear that comes a long with a fun picnic.
So, who knows. We are thinking sooner rather than later. I am going to get some decals with the people and put that on the van. And perhaps call it "The FUN bus!" We have always joked about a big 'church' van, but hey! If it makes life easier then Who CARES!!
I am going to take some photos tonight before the sun goes down. Cliff is outside mowing and weed eating. I am inside feeding my girl. I will join them as soon as I am done.
What a great day! And thank you to AMBER for creating my newest HEADER! I absolutely LOVE it! You are the best!
