Picnic Night!


Wow!  What a week it has been!  As of last night, I had worked 54 hours this week.  The classroom was in disarray and I've been staying after hours every night cleaning out and getting organized.  Despite some serious exhaustion, I couldn't be happier.  I tend to thrive when I'm under pressure and most busy.  Additionally, I had an interview for a kindergarten position for the fall at a small Catholic school.  It went incredibly well, so I'm crossing my fingers I might be hearing good news in the next week!

Today I wanted to share a recent date night Bryce and I had.  Because we began to have a tendency to do the same things over and over, I decided to shake it up a bit last week and surprise Bryce with a picnic night.

We packed a picnic basket and headed to Brown's Island!

We checked out the views of the river before settling down.

I love this photo Bryce snapped of us!

We found a nice spot to enjoy our picnic.

We had quite the spread, Rosemont Wine, Brie en Croute, Salad, and Strawberries!
I also was so excited to use my new wine bottle stopper!

AMF gave me this cute tray, knife, and napkin set for my birthday and I thought this was the perfect occasion to use it.

Enjoying his salad...the one thing we forgot at home was dressing--Bryce got creative and poured a little wine on his!

Miss Dixie's Brie en Croute was a huge hit!

We practically had the island to ourselves!

After eating we took a little walk out onto a bridge and enjoyed the sunset!

The "MORE MOOSE" on this bridge cracked me up...I hope it doesn't have some bad connotation I don't know about!

Enjoying the James River!

Bryce and I love fun date nights like these.  Richmond has so much to offer and now that the weather has warmed up we look forward to more fun, outdoorsy evenings!

Have you been on a picnic lately?  What are some of your favorite picnic foods?

Have a great weekend!  I'm off to C'ville to enjoy the annual Foxfield Races!
