One of the things that Timon and I like to do on a date is to bike from the South Shore to the Old Port of Montreal for a picnic. We’ve decided to make it a tradition to have a family picnic at the Old Port of Montreal every summer.
This year we had our family picnic on the last day of summer. I’m so glad we got the chance to soak in some sun and spend some quality time together before the cooler seasons start.
It was two years ago when Timon surprised me one day with food already prepared and packed inside our picnic bag. I had told him before that I wanted us to spend some time together and go on a date! I wanted to do something different. He got creative and told me we’ll have a picnic at the Old Port of Montreal, but we’ll have to bike there from the South Shore. Unlike the previous years, this year we took the car. It was just simpler with a little baby. However, I look forward to that day when Lori is old enough to ride her own bike with us.
Have I told you guys that Lori is a daddy’s girl? She already knows how to get what she wants from daddy – give him a kiss and call him “dada” with her softest voice.
I didn’t take pictures of our picnic table because it really wasn’t anything fancy. We had cheese, grapes, homemade juice, coconut drink (my favourite) and chips (of course!). Instead, I took lots of pictures of my two favourite people in the world! (Yes, I have a lot of favourites!). Lori is just getting bigger by the day, so I grab every chance I have to snap candid pictures of her.
It really doesn’t take much to create long-lasting memories. The recipe is fun, love, a lot of kisses, and a camera to capture everything. =)
