Bento in the Park

We finally got out for a bento picnic! Since I ordered the bento boxes just before vacation, we were too busy to actually get to use them. So today, I decided to pack up our boxes and head out for a picnic.

Our 4 bentos and the snack box.


Each of our bentos contained: 
Top:  Fried Rice & Veggies, Homemade Gyoza, Mini Corn
Bottom: Sliced Strawberries, Tangerine Sections, Tiny Japanese Cookies

I got the cookies from the shops in Japan at Epcot Center last month. They were so good! I wish I would have bought more than one packet! 

Snack Box: Crackers & Cheese

I packed these since Micah is so incredibly picky, I knew he he wouldn't have anything to do with anything in the bentos except maybe the cookies. He only ate 2 of the cookies. I think he was just tired and didn't feel like eating. He really enjoyed playing with the little forks and spoons though.
Enjoying bento in the park. Laural loves gyoza!

We had our picnic in the gazebo in the park in town. It's a good thing we chose to eat there because not long into our meal, it started to rain. It didn't rain too long and Laural got to play for a few minutes before we headed home so Micah and Steve could sleep. It was a lovely lunch and I'm so happy to finally have had our bento picnic. Next time, maybe we will try for healthier drinks for Steve and I. At least the kids had fruit & veggie juice.

For those who are interested: I got the boxes on ebay. The seller was fromJapan2u. The boxes are called Natural Lunch Time. They also come in beige. I bought the straps separately from kawaii_kewpie_store and benrigoods09. I love these boxes and how nice it was to have matching boxes for our outing.
