Picnic with the Pinks

Thing 1 and Thing 2 had a school holiday, and we spent the day together. It was the first time they'd been to the top of the mountain...
...where it was still freezing - literally. So we had our picnic halfway down. There are not many things both Things like to eat, so I got up at dawn to roast a chicken (cold chicken isn't one of the things they eat) and it was a huge hit. Then we played Spot Your House.
They did. 

Thing 2 wanted to build stuff, and when it got too cold outside we made bath salts for sore muscles.
Epsom salts, essential oils, food coloring.
I may sleep for a week, but I haven't had so much fun since I was a kid. I think there's a lesson in there - if you want to have as much fun as you did when you were a kid, get a kid to be your guide. Thank you Pinks.


  1. Thing 1 told me that the chicken stayed warm because you double wrapped it.

    Thing 2 told me that lunch was so good that she couldn't keep herself from taking a nap at the end of it to aid her digestion. She NEVER naps so I am quite impressed. Not sure she was supposed to use half the bath salts in the tub that evening but she did. And she didn't want to share with Thing 1 either. Thank you for not using lavender!
