A Packed Lunch and 4 bucks!

Once upon a Frugal Friday, this is how we spent our day.....
For $4, I packed up 6 little kiddywinkies, and we set out for the park/beach! Ah yes, this is one of our favorite places! We are usually alone here most of the time, and its right in the middle of no where! Often, it seems as though its just God, us, and His creation! It is a beautiful place!
*****
We love to swim!
And OH! -what a view!!!


...We even catch tadpoles too!
(Did you catch that little rhyme there? Yeah, I just sorta snuck that one in...clever huh?)

Then we play on the sandy playground...

and look at the honeysuckles that we've found!
(Hey, I did it again! Woo Hoo Me!)

Oh, and here's our packed lunch
..homemade this morning for us to munch!
(Ok, that's enough...now I'm aggravating myself!)
But about the packed lunch....I spent about an hour in the kitchen that morning before we left and whipped up some pita bread, some whole wheat chocolate chip muffins, and then I mixed up some tuna, mayo, and boiled eggs. I tucked sliced pickles in the cooler along with some shredded lettuce for the pita sandwiches. You can also see a bunch of bananas! And yep, thats a jug of homemade tea ...and water bottles, and some salsa and blue corn chips!
We had a royal, frugal blast!~
