Picnic Week: Easy, portable lunches and snacks

Picnic Week: Easy, portable lunches and snacks

I remember when Scarlett was really little. I used to pack a blanket, toys, a bottle and a snack for me and head to a park. I actually used to keep a blanket in the trunk of the car just in case I wanted an impromptu picnic. Scarlett was so small. She obviously would love being outdoors, on a blanket in the sun, but I remember thinking when she’s older this will be so fun. Well, she’s older now and I was right. We love a good picnic and are pretty happy to make one anywhere–on a slip of grass, on the beach, on the floor in front of the TV, bascially anywhere. We play games, eat, cuddle, stare at the sky, watch tv, listen to music, you name it. All you need is a blanket, some great company and, of course, good food.

Here are some of our favorite picnic tag-alongs…
