As much as we try to eat dinner together, we’re not always on the same schedule.
When Fox comes home from school he’s usually ready to eat immediately, but Tyler and I tend to eat lunch late throughout the workday and don’t always have food ready and on the table.
I don’t love for him to fill up on snacks prior to dinner, so we’ve been getting creative with mealtime options that are easier to make on the fly — especially if we’re trying to soak up some sunshine now that it’s getting darker later.
Tonight we went out to the bike path and let Fox scoot around for a bit.
This is (by far!) one of my favorite places in Buffalo — a spot I lived so close to when I was younger that I could bike over and keep on going. In one straight line, you exit the suburbs, head into farmland, forest, and more.
I have to admit, the last time I was here I was on a date in high school learning how to rollerblade backwards, which is too funny not to share!
The log I used to stop at for a water break has since been swapped for a bench, so we set up a mini-picnic for Fox.
We brought along his water bottle and a Happy Tot Love My Veggies Bowl.
You already know we love the Happy Tot brand, so I was really happy to see a new product from them on the shelf at Target.
This fun item comes in a ready-to-eat bowl that can be enjoyed at room temperature or gently warmed. There are no artificial preservatives, flavors, or colors, and the packing is BPA-free.
A huge draw to me is that each sauce is sweetened only with organic fruits and a full serving of veggies, meaning 0g added sugar!
We’re just about ready to spring for a bike for our guy now that he’s comfy on both scooters and trikes, so there will be plenty more visits to the bike path in the future.
What’s your favorite place to throw a picnic in your town?
