"Dean, have we ever been on a picnic?"

When you were three, people always remembered stuff you didn't, like "You met Grandpa once," or "We have so been in a truck!"

Dean packed lunch, and led them along the creek to a meadow with jungle-high grass.

"Is this picnic food?"

"Sure."

Sam drank soda and ate crackers while watching butterflies and listening to the grass hum.

Later, they crossed over the creek and back into town.

"Where are we?"

"The market. A block from the apartment."

How could that wonderful green world have been hiding so incredibly close to home?

Loved this! Just what Dean would do.

Thank you! A kid should never grow up without having gone picnicking at least once!

Awwww... that was adorable. And I LOVE your icon.

Thank you!

I have such a weakness for this icon, partly because the "Sam" in it looks exactly like my son did at that age. :)

Lovely. Of course Dean knows where to find the wild places ;)

:D I think everything seems a whole lot wilder when it's taller than you are. Not being able to see "the rest of the world" makes it seem so much more remote somehow.

I used to picnic across the back fence on the farm where we lived until I was 6. The babysitter would pack a lunch for me, and I'd stomp out into the meadow and find a good spot to eat my peanutbutter and honey sandwich and drink my Nestle's Quick-flavored milk from a tupperware cup (with a water-tight lid!). :)

Had a field like that next to where I grew up. I don't know what kind of grass it was, but it turned the most awesome golden color in the fall, and it was about 3 feet high. You could lie down and watch the clouds and be totally hidden. Or at least it felt that way!

:D Wee - chesters! :D That one! I love! :D
lol thank you *hugs* That was really sweet and adorable ^.^

"Sam drank soda and ate crackers while watching butterflies and listening to the grass hum."

I just can't help but imagine how awkward and peaceful this would be in the same time. :)

Yay-- I'm so glad you liked it! I don't think it could be fluffier or more innocent, which is a nice change in setting.

I just can't help but imagine how awkward and peaceful this would be in the same time. :)
I don't think he'd mind it-- it's very much an outdoor haven.

I remember years ago that we were unpacking Christmas decorations, and my son (who was perhaps 2) got on a dining room table chair to eat animal crackers and just watch all the fascinating things come out. :)

Awwww. *hearts* :-) I remember finding little hidden, seekrit spots like that, when I was a kid. Very sweet!

:) I sometimes think it's because kids are so small (and the world so mysterious) that it's easier for them to find those magical places, both in the world and inside themselves. :)

Sam reaching out for normal, getting Dean's veriosn, and being perfectly happy with the result.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on November 13th, 2009 06:17 pm (UTC)
Yes! And little kids can sometimes be very flexible with things like that.

It's not really the food that counts, after all. Or how far away you go to picnic. :)

aww that was so sweet! :o)
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: weechestershalfshellvenus on November 16th, 2009 08:15 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I can totally see Dean doing this for Sam, and Sam finding it every bit as magical as if they were off in an enchanted forest. :)
seerargentseerargent on November 15th, 2009 11:36 am (UTC)
YES!!! Oh Dean, creating worlds and memories for Sammy.

So hopelessly rushed through being a child himself, but still holding a better perspective on why all of those things matter than his father could anymore.

Sam was lucky to have that balance, even if he didn't know it. :)
