Special Storytime

For a GREAT time, pack up some of your favorite books, a few tasty snacks, and a picnic blanket. Visit your favorite park for some outdoor storytime fun and make some lovely memories with your kids!!

Stories don’t always have to be read indoors, you know. Extra bonus points if your books happen to be nature-themed!

You may want to bring along a sketchbook for an impromptu drawing session too! So inspiring!!

When the weather is this beautiful, it seems like a crime to be stuck indoors, so we try to savor every minute of it.

Have fun!!


  1. Dear Valerie,

    The grass is getting really green.. I’m going to have to mow ours soon.


    We should get goats.


  2. Dear Mark,

    Goats also provide the entertainment for the evening as they climb and get stuck in places.

    Only problem we have is the wind blows the pages as we read πŸ™

    • I’ve heard you’ve had your share of very windy weather there w/ crazy tornados and whatnot — stay safe, my friend!!!

  3. Lovely, lovely, lovely! We love taking a blanket outside and lounging….reading…staring up at the sky…thank you for the inspiration!

    • Thanks, Marnie! Have fun reading & enjoying some quality time outdoors with the kiddos!!! xoxo

  4. I love this! Your precious girls. I didn’t realize you had posted about this. You are so inspiring!

  5. How do you get such vibrant colors in your photos?!

    Great idea! Will definitely take along some books & picnic on the next warm day!
