Muffin Tin Monday

 We had such a wonderful long weekend with daddy home that we had to finish it up with something fun! We headed to the zoo this morning {have I mentioned how much I LOVE living so close to the zoo and having a membership?!} for a train ride and a picnic!

Usually daddy is working when Maddie and I head to the zoo so this was a special treat for her. We decided that such a special day deserved a train ride too. Maddie was thrilled to have daddy joining her on the train this time!

Having a membership means we don't feel compelled to see all the exhibits every single time we go. Today we visited the giant 700 pound tortoise and all the babies.

We were also lucky enough to watch one of the red pandas come down for breakfast.

After our quick trip at the zoo we headed to the nearby picnic area and found the perfect tree to lay our blanket under.

Maddie was happily surprised to see mommy packed her a mini muffin tin lunch in the basket. 

Maddie snacked on some bunny grahams, baked cheetos {soooo yummy!}, a fruit cup and pb& j on whole wheat white bread.

A bit of fun on the swings finished off a lovely morning!

Be sure to stop by Muffin Tin Mom's for some other great muffin tin meals!

We were at the zoo last week and packed a picnic lunch as well. I love having a membership too!!! I totally agree that you don't feel like you have to rush to see everything all at once :0) What a yummy looking MTM and a really fun day too.
