Six-word Saturday


Picnics on the living room floor.

At my daughter's request, this week I hosted two picnics on our living room floor, complete with a blanket and a lunch with all the trimmings. We both had a great time, and my daughter has been talking about her "special lunches" for days. I'm glad I took the time to create this memory—for both of us.
 
Wishing you all a joyful Saturday. ☺

  2. Sounds like the thing I should be doing, no point in going out as it's snowing

  4. My granddaughter loved the special "tea parties". She loved putting her cookies on the special plates.

    You're the one that brought me to 6WS, so thanks! It is a fun way to share a bit of your life with the others!

  6. We used to do that too! I did a similar thing as a child - not with my mom but with my brothers and I still remember that -

  8. I don't have children of my own but I do work with them. I agree that it's about the little things. They remember simple gestures like this. Your picnics sound fun. Enjoy your weekend.

  14. I used to do that with my mom and my grandparents. It always ended up being in front of the TV but with nobody paying attention to it. I guess thats what happens when every time you plan an outdoor picnic, it ends up raining that same day. We never had much luck planning around the weather but I think that made it more special. =)

    1. We had a great time. I'm sure we'll have at least a few more indoor picnics while we wait for spring—and then maybe we can go outdoors!

  24. Our kids loved 'breakfast picnics'....we'd grab some bagels and oj and the book we were currently reading and head to the park. I treasure those memories!
