I spent the yesterday with my little doll.  Mommy and Daddy dropped her off with me for the day and we had a great time.  She is a 2 1/2 year old firecracker!  She loves the farm, so much for her to see.  She really liked the gazebo even though it is still unfinished, she loved to go inside and sit and watch the birds.

 I know that she will love it when we start to do picnics together.  The whole family or even just the two of us.  When I was little, staying with my grandparents all summer, my grandmother would say "Let's have a picnic" and off we would go.  We would pack a basket with whatever we could find, make lemonade and head out to the farmers field.  We always set up lunch on a couple of bales of hay and ate amongst the cows.  They were very good guests.

Sometimes, when our grandfather was home on holidays or weekends off, we would pack the car and just stopped wherever we found a nice spot and spend the day enjoying the summer weather.  I treasure those memories so much.

This summer I will start that tradition again with my little sweetheart.  With so many nooks and crannies on the farm we can set off with our basket and have a ball.  I think from now on when the family is all here we are going to picnic out in the fields for lunch and dinner too.  There is nothing nicer than sitting at a table outside with you family, it makes the food taste better.  I can start to make some special cakes ,  I know she will love the Bee Cake, I can't wait.
