I just love the summer time! The sun is shining, warmer temps, BBQ with friends and family. What could be better? Since my boys will be enjoying summer vacation in just a few short weeks, I thought we should plan a family picnic. Picnics are so much fun and super easy to do on the fly. There are so many delicious recipes to make and take, soft blankets to pack and tons of entertainment. It’s no secret, I love to plan. I NEED to plan and be organized! I get a bit crazy if things don’t go a certain way. Lucky for you that I’m such a good planner because I have created some must-have’s to pack for your picnic to the park. So, go outside and enjoy the beautiful weather!
