I don't remember being much of a picnic person before having kids. I guess it sounded vaguely good, but not so good that I actually made the effort. But with kids, it is one of my favorite things to do on a nice day. We get some time playing outside, and eat lunch. Leaving all of the crumbs at the park/beach is a nice little bonus too!
And now we finally have a great picnic blanket to take along with us. It's DONE!!! The ugly burgandy thing is no more! Now it looks like this!
It still lives in my car, but now we'll actually take it out and use it!
