Pizza, pizza on the porch

The weather today in our area was absolutely fantastic. Sunny, not too warm, not too cold. One of the things that I would like to work on is being more intentional in getting the kids outside during nice I decided that we needed to have dinner on the porch. 

We do not have a backyard to speak of....our neighbor lets us use his yard to play....but there is a lovely front porch on our house where we keep our patio furniture that was gifted to us several years ago. I decided that today was as good a day as any to wipe down the patio furniture and eat dinner outside. 

Friday night is pizza night at our house. So while the pizza was cooking, I took a bucket of soapy water outside and wiped down the chairs, table and the 2 little tables. I also swept the leaves, etc. off the porch. It looks better. There is still some deep cleaning that needs to be done, but it is better. 

Rebecca, Jacob and Benjamin were super excited to eat outside on the porch. They loved eating their pizza and raspberries and blueberries for dinner. Then they spent about half an hour just dancing and watching their reflection in our storm door. It was a lovely dinner experience!

When the weather is nice, do you eat outside? 


  1. We eat outside often in the summer. I have already scrubbed the deck and screened porch at the house and will clean the lake place today.
