One of the traditions we have is to pack up a picnic lunch and have lunch with Bill on the grass behind his work. We started this tradition many years ago when we had our pet dog, Shadow. We try to do this weekly. It is fun for me to get to see my husband during the day and puppies enjoy hanging out in the wide open and getting a bit of nature. And Bill gets to take a break from the office and see the cute pups. It is a quiet area with a field behind us and a too big parking lot in front. There is a grassy berm with trees for shade in the hot weather.
