Picnic in the Park!

It is almost the end of summer here in New Zealand but the weather this week has been hotter than ever.
So this morning before Liberty left for school I told her I would take her and her two little cousins for a picnic in the park after school.

I look after these two sweet little cousins four days a week.
We also had cupcakes but they were eaten in a flash!

Two older people walked past and were thrilled to see we were having a 'real' picnic, lol!

This little sweetheart is almost two...she wanted to see more of the park!
So we walked to the Winter Gardens.

There was a large group of tourists from China in the Winter Gardens and they all wanted to have their photo taken with us!

At one stage about twenty tourists were taking photos of us! 
They were enchanted with my three little blondes.
I told Liberty that's what it felt like to be a rock star!!

It was a fun way to break the after school monotony...I see more picnics in the future.

Back home for ice blocks!

I found the super cute tin picnic basket on sale at Typo this morning!



  1. Looks like fun, Mercedes, with all those little blondies!!!

  2. realmente parecen tres pequeñas hadas entre las flores, no me extraña que fuesen como una atracción, liberad se esta convirtiendo en toda una señorita
    un abrazo

  3. Lovely idea for an after school party!Liberty has grown up so much...she looks wonderfull and the little ones are as cute as a button.
    Hugs, Ro

  4. What an ideal afternoon. I think sometimes we forget the simple things like picnics in our rushed lives. Must do that with my daughter soon before winter sets in.

  5. que bonitas imagenes , y que tres rubias tan guapas , se ve que os lo pasasteis muy bien , me alegro



  6. So wonderful my sweet friend. Made my day seeing these super cute girls. I can't wait till the day I meet them in person. Beautiful, happy day! Love to you! ❤️

  7. picnics in the park, in the shade are quite the best way to spend a very hot summer afternoon, especially when followed by an ice lolly. Wouldn't it be fun to make this scene in miniature (including the trees, children, picnic rug and good things to eat).

  8. How lovely girls!!!! Really beautiful idea!!

  9. So lovely! I really can understand the Chinese tourists: your little ones look like fairys!

  10. Hi Mercedes! Your little Liberty is growing up fast and into a very pretty young lady with a great smile and a happy face! You must be very proud of her too! It is so nice that all of the cousins got to spend a day together and what a beautiful day it was.


  11. Liberty and the little ones are adorable! So lovely!
    Picnic in the park : great idea!

  12. Hi there! I also love picnics! How fun the pictures with the tourists. Best regards from Barna!
