When's the last time you went on a picnic?

What's your favorite picnic foods?

Where is your favorite place to have a picnic?

Gee they have a month for everything!
Can't remember the last time I went on a picnic.
Now if there is access to a BBQ there then I like to take sausages, sliced onions rolls and BBQ sauce.
If no cooking then a variety of sandwiches, cheeses, and grapes.
Favorite place near here is the open range zoo.

It depends on what you consider going on a picnic. Several years ago a group of us met on the coast at a state park for a bbq. If you mean packing a picnic basket and blanket tlike you'd see in a movie then probably never. If you mean sitting at a picnic table at an RV park then within the last couple of years. *lol* Favorites foods would be potato salad and deviled eggs. As you can tell from above, I don't have a favorite place.

Sitting with friends at a picnic table is just fine. You're outside, enjoying the food and company, that's all that matters!

A picnic table is way more comfortable than a rug. We usually take a rug and folding chairs, just for comfort.

Yes it is a great place and now you can get into part of it for free, so nice for the bank balance. Did I mention we back onto park then grazing land so that is great for a fast picnic for a two year old.

2 year olds love picnics but keeping them bussy for long is hard to do!

Love all the foods for your picnic! Nothing better than a picnic near a pond or lake...
