quick family picnic.

my little twin sisters came up to the d.c. temple on saturday so we met them on the temple grounds for a quick picnic. we enjoyed some pizza, roasted olives, arancini (italian rice balls) and homemade donuts from 2amy’s. we also split some yummy cupcakes from something sweet. nothing beats perfect pizza plus family time. it was a really nice afternoon.
