Are you tired of winter yet? I am! It is getting colder here and tonight there is talk of snow! Of course, we couldn’t get snow during Christmas. It has to snow when we don’t want it to! All I can do is dream of spring, getting in the car with the windows rolled down, and taking off for a picnic in one of our amazing parks!
If you are going on a picnic you need a couple of things!
- A blanket
- Plates, napkins, and silverware
- Amazing food!
