A Picnic in the Park

One Saturday afternoon, we took advantage of the beautiful weather. I was bored and burnt out from work, so hubby took me to a lazy picnic date in the park. We've been wanting to do this ever since I got here over a year ago, but just didn't get the perfect chance. I was happy that finally we were able to try this activity. The closest park from us is like three-fourths of a mile, but it was jampacked with picnickers that day, so we head out to Reed Mt. instead which is about 6 miles from the house. It looks like we have the whole place to ourselves, doesn't it?

I enjoyed the green surrounding, the smell of the air, the cool breeze, and even watching the few kids play. If we would buy our own house, we'd like to have a patio, or a porch or sundeck where we can just relax while admiring nature. Of course, a beautiful set of patio furniture is a must to make the whole experience fantastic. I never would have thought that I'll enjoy the outdoors. I've never been the outdoorsy type back home. I'm surprised that I actually liked nature when I got here. It's a striking balance to my love for shopping, isn't it? At least, if we no longer have money to shop, cheap activities like this can be a fallback, lol!
