I like the idea of having a picnic basket and going on idea picnics, but the ideal doesn't happen. We do eat outside often though. Side of the road picnics on our many road trips:
Spring Break 2012
Fall mountain dirt road jaunt.
There have been others--we will bust out the portable stove, or just do sandwiches. It's fun and we love being in the mountains--especially the fall. Few bugs, and good weather make for fun trips down the dirt roads to check out the sights. And for us the sights can include:
We are very lucky to live in a very beautiful part of the world. WE try to get out to enjoy our greater "backyard" every chance we get. We usually take food with us when we do and that results in "picnics" even if they aren't the basket of food kind of picnics. Do you picnic? Spin it up and link up with Gretchen and Ginny Marie, they would love to have you!
