Is it our imagination or does food taste better when it’s eaten outside? We’ve never put it to the test, but we know that as soon as the weather gets warmer, we take our plates to the great outdoors. Sometimes, we take them to a park, but often we only go as far as the screen porch. Either way, we call it a picnic.

Five Fun Things to Bring on a Picnic:

Everyone knows to pack cups for the wine and a big bag for the trash. It’s the extras you bring that make your picnic special:

  1. Frisbee
  2. Kite
  3. Binoculars
  4. Wide brim hat
  5. Pillow for a snooze
