Picnic In Colorado

The kids do impromptu picnics at impromptu times for impromptu reasons.  With whatever portable food they can find or make, they pack their randonnée backpack.

( Randonnée sack,  four buck fiddy at Decathalon.  I love Decathlon. )

Once the picnic packs are packed, they grab a talkie walkie and set out.  Otto tweets in, not unlike his father, often.  This day, Otto and Z and Lumi went out to Colorado.  Colorado is the paddocked we named because it was high.  I walked them out, they ate then we left Otto behind to finish his meal.  I usually don’t walk them to the picnic spot, they find one, but puppy and three-year-old needed a chaperone or they needed to chaperone my worries.  I have no doubt that Z will make it there  and back again.

By city standards, they go far.  By farm standards, I’m trying to shake my city standards. I love that the kids can enjoy a picnic in the middle of nowhere and find their way back.
