Picnics are something I have always loved. Quality family time without disraction of chores, phone calls, TVs, computers, etc…
Before children, Greg and I had picnics at Ravinia, an outdoor concert venue with seating and lawn space. When our children were small, we owned a boat and had a lot of picnics on shore. Today it seems like the only time we have picnics is when we go on a bike rides. I throw peanutbutter and jelly sandwhiches in a bag, grab carrots and pretzels, and off we go. The memory is the bikeride. Definately NOT the picnic.
I got an awesome cookbook as a gift from my cousin, Heather Rohm, a few years ago. (She is a graphic designer and stylized al the photos and designed the cookbook. AMAZING!!) As I was looking through it, I thought why can’t I start a tradition of picnics in my family?
I’m so excited to use this cookbook this summer. My goal is to have two picnics each month this summer.
A quiet picnic for two
A big picnic for family and friends
A celebration picnic with family and friends
A picnic with just our kids, maybe at a baseball game
A picnic at the beach
(HOPEFULLY) A house warming picnic/party
What occations this summer could you have a picnic and start a new tradition? Is there something special that you want to share with your family? Taking them on a picnic could be just the time to do it!
