a swampy picnic

January 24 2014 161

if you have been coming here for a while, you are probably well acquainted with swampspace and the fact that Lily is somewhat of a swampy girl

on this particular day we were on a regular walk around the neighborhood

a little bit of a nature walk actually since there are always so many flowers to look at

half way through our walk, Lily suggested we stop by swampspace to “check out what Oli is doing”

and so we did

Oli was inside working on projects just like he always is

while there, Lily suggested we walk back home, grab some food and return to have a picnic

she is just full of great ideas this little one

and that is just what we didi

we are lucky to live so close to our friend’s studio/gallery which you can see can also be a bit of a playground

it was a fun and inspiring way to spend the afternoon
