Silas and I have a lot of free time after his preschool and before Shae gets out of school now. Yesterday, I took him on a surprise picnic at one of our favorite parks. We haven't been there in awhile, so it was nice to sit in the shade and stare at the sea together.
Although, Silas did a lot more "JUST CHECKING ON THE SEALIFE REAL QUICK, MOMMY!", than actual sitting. He was pretty aggravated at the amount of trash at the edge of the water.
We ate our peanut butter & jelly sandwiches and apple slices and talked about how we can only be in charge of our own choices and we can't force other people not to litter. We can do the right thing and hope that others do too! Or we can clean up their trash and just feel good for helping the sea animals have a safer home. (That's what we ended up doing)
He wanted to count the hermit crabs and this whole eating lunch thing, was really harshing his mellow.
He tried to convince me to "help" him eat.
But then decided walking & eating at the same time would work out just fine.
Vegan fruit snacks for dessert!
A little whale sliding...
Made for a nice end to the long school week <3
