Impromptu picnic

One of my favorite things about summer is impromptu family excursions. Tonight, I just wanted to get out of the house and have a dinner picnic while also entertaining little man. 

Washed some fresh fruit

Made 'Breakfast Cakes'
{recipe below}
{try not to be jealous of my 1960's counter tops- i know it is really hard ;-) }

Breakfast Cakes
You will need:
1 package of turkey sausage
1 package of reduced fat cream cheese
2 packages of reduced fat crescent rolls

Preheat oven per crescent rolls directions. Open crescent rolls and leave in rectangles {meaning, do not break apart into individual triangles. You should have four per package}. Set aside on a nonstick cookie sheet. Brown the sausage in a skillet until done. Drain really well {if you dont get all the grease drained, the cakes will be mushy and you dont want that do ya?}. Return ground turkey sausage to skillet and put back on low heat. Add the cream cheese and stir until just melted and mixed in with sausage. Take off oven and divide mix between the 8 rectangles, putting filling on the bottom half of the rectangle. Fold the top of rectangle down over mix and push sides together to seal. Bake per crescent rolls directions, just until golden brown. ENJOY!

We decided to go to a nearby harbor and let little man play on the splash pad. Here is the lovely picnic we enjoyed, and swatted the flies away from:

During the picnic, little man decided he needed to go potty on the ground {LOL}, and we didnt get there quite fast enough to stop him! He He!!

The he played with daddy on the splash pad

Sweet doodlebug slept while I finished the book 'Dear John.'

I am so in love with my family! What a great family night out... and it was free!
