today is sponsored by the letter J.

Oh my gosh, you guys.  I actually left the house today!  And it wasn't to run errands or do anything necessary [unless, of course, you consider breathing fresh air necessary...]

When John came home from school he found me wallowing napping on the couch.  I woke up feeling kinda funky, so I moved to the couch to rest under the rays of sunshine.  I probably could have stayed there all day - again - but John said it was a really nice day outside and I could hear the longing in his voice to get out of the house.

So we went on a picnic!!

One of the things I love most about Rexburg [besides corn-on-a-stick] is that there are so many parks and fields and open spaces.  Our personal favorite is the duck pond/nature park that's hidden away behind the fairgrounds.  It's never very crowded, and there are always always ducks there begging for some of your lunch.  It does smell pretty funky in the winter, tho...


Here's a quick peek at our little picnic:


I must admit... it was nice to be outside.  And with my three favorite j's... jimmy john's, jamba, and of course my Johnny Monster!!  We should definitely make this a habit - only maybe I'll learn how to make picnic-y foods for the future.

Oh, you noticed the loaf of bread, just sitting by the edge of the pond?!  Yeah.  The ducks weren't very hungry when we were feeding them, so we left it there.  I'm sure little duckies like midnight snacks too!!
