Sunday Snapshot — At the Playground

Last week, the girls and I packed some sandwiches, kidnapped Mark from work, and went to a nearby playground during his lunch hour. We had so much fun!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

    I'm so thrilled I won the giveaway!

    This looks like a lovely lunch date! I think I will have to do this too! My girls would LOVE it (and hubby would too!)

    Kidnapping working Daddies is always fun! We live by several Metro Parks and have a yearly pass. Brad also works by one so we like to pick him up and go eat outside and swing on the play ground once a week or so when the weather is nice. It's nice and shady at the one down the road from his office, so even during the hot summer days the shady and breeze from the river make it bearable.

  3. Dear Valerie,

    I'm hardly a kid anymore, so you could not have kidnapped me.

    Who am I kidding? Yes, I am. 🙂


  4. I love all of your Sunday snapshot posts. They are always so sweet. Great pictures. That sounds like a great way to spend a lunch hour!

    I want for my family to kidnap me too once in a while. I won't put up a fight. Great pictures.

  6. What a fun idea! I think when we have an extra vehicle, my kids and I should do the same with my hubby-I'm sure it would be a nice break from work and nice for the kiddos and I to get out! 🙂

  7. Oh, we are so going to kidnap Jeff soon.
    Sigh, I wish my little girl would let me put her hair up in pigtails, those are always so cute.

  8. Very fun! We do this sometimes too =)

    @ Mommy Moment — I was so happy to see came up with your number! Congrats!

    @ Katie's Nesting Spot — That sounds wonderful!

    @ Kristie — Yes, I highly recommend it!

    @ Ticia — That sounds great! You guys will have so much fun! Emily's pigtails are getting to be her signature look! I almost can't picture her without them. I've noticed that they start to droop when she gets tired. The more droopy the pigtails are, the more sleepy she starts to get!

    @ Brianna — Enjoy your Spring Break! 🙂

    I so can't wait for some nice weather to get out to the park too.
