Luke loves Thomas the Train and coincidentally Thomas and Friends love to eat fish and chips. Thus Luke also craves fish and chips. He's also pretty much BFFs with his walrus who he believes "lives in the cold world and eats fish too!" He asks daily if we can have fish and chips for dinner and at first I thought, um, he will never eat this and then on a whim (with the plan for John to actually be the one to eat it) we ordered it for him and he devoured it.
Tonight we indulged his wish and ordered ourselves up some meals from Adirondack Seafood Co. However, he didn't want to just eat it at home or at the restaurant, he wanted to have a picnic in the park. And so we did.
We found the perfect spot in the grass and as we sat down on our blanket Luke declared, "this is just the best spot for a picnic. I suppose. Right Mom?"
Oh I suppose Luke. It was perfect.
He shared his fish with Ellie who really would rather not venture there, she was happy with her leftover mac-n-cheese and applesauce.
We walked across the bridges and around the pond. We even went to the playground.
It was monumentally epic in the eyes of my Luke.
