The reason the category “Carpe Adventure” exists at all is because I promised Railey that all summer long, we would have adventures every Thursday. Thursday is my day with her, just the two of us, and I have all these fun things planned. School ended last week and so it was time for our first adventure, a fairy picnic!
The menu was simple as befits a picnic and consisted of watermelon wands, flower shaped tuna fish sandwiches, blueberries and blueberry lemonade.
Railey helped me make the food and we started with the watermelon wands.
I cut the watermelon into slices and she used the cookie cutter to make the star shape.
Once the watermelon stars were out we found some old, food-safe sticks and stuck them in the watermelon.
We found more use for the cookie cutters when we made the sandwiches. We used them to cut flower shapes out of some wheat bread.
Once the flower shapes were done I mixed up some tuna and made some lovely, fairy sandwiches.
We whipped up some blueberry lemonade and found an old Easter basket. We packed everything up, grabbed a fairy blanket and headed outside!
We had a wonderful time eating our delicious food.
Once we finished our meal, Railey worked off her food running around the lawn while I took the opposite approach.
All in all it was a great way to start our summer adventures and we enjoyed it immensely!
