Since eating out is relatively expensive in France, people usually bring their own food and have picnics somewhere when they are outdoor. We have many natural parks and lakes around, and they are equipped with picnic tables and chairs.
During the summer holidays, the girls were so excited when I announced to them that we were going to the park and doing picnic.
Simple lunch : ham with French baguette, some cucumber and some dessert.
A huge place to run around.
Playground to spend their energy.
Slide is her favorite.
Time for a snack.
Don't need to travel far, they just need some times out with us.
