Keeping kiddies happy on the go

So we love to be outside when the sun is out (doesn’t everyone)?  And if there’s one lesson I’ve learned from my 3.5 years as a mom, it’s to ALWAYS bring food when you go outside!  Herein lies the challenge – anything ‘easy’ you can grab and go tends to be processed and full of sugar.  It’s kind of okay once in awhile but I try not to let that be the default mode!  So — scan fridge, find fruit — this time, watermelon and nectarines.  Sold!  I quickly cut them into grab-able pieces, threw them in a plastic container and we were off.  Lily loved her little watermelon slices!  So did Ayla, although she refused to let me take a pic… Ah, 3 year olds! Gotta love em.
