A Picnic In The Park

We’ve had some absolutely gorgeous weather in our area lately, probably one of the most normal spring’s temperature wise we’ve had in years.  Mimi and Fiona decided to take advantage of the good weather and have a picnic in the park.  After swinging by the local chicken place to pick up food, they were ready to go.  Well…almost.

“I’m really glad we decided to grab dinner and bring it out to the park.  It’s so pretty and the weather is perfect.  Hopefully the wind won’t try and blow our food away though.”

“I agree Mimi, it’s too nice to sit indoors on a day like today.  Besides, it’s supposed to rain all weekend, so we might as well take advantage of it while we can.”

“Uh oh Fiona, we have a problem…”

“we only have one fork!”

“I thought for sure we grabbed two!  Oh well, we can share.  I don’t think you have cooties, do you???”

Is there anything you always manage to forget when you decide to go on a picnic?  I’m usually pretty good at remembering things, but I have to admit, there have been a few times where I’ve found myself eating yogurt with a fork, which isn’t exactly easy!  I actually did think I’d packed two forks and I’m not sure if I lost it or it just never made it into the bag and is somewhere in the house here.  The girls at least made the best of it and it gave an interesting twist to a simple picnic story!

    • I did eventually find the fork–it was stuck in Mimi’s overalls in the back. Not sure if she was trying to smuggle it out or something…

  1. Try eating soup with a fork! I have this problem a lot at work. (I end up drinking it then using the fork for whatever is left in the cup).

    Picnic looks great! We too should get rain. I am not looking forward to it.

  2. Love it! Great weather! Must take advantage when you can! The picnic looks delicious.

    Yes, I tend to forget things when I pack…even with lists!

    Yep, cup-o-soup still exists. But Campbell’s has also come up with a handheld, drinkable soup. It’s okay, but some of the flavors don’t make sense. I mean tomato is perfect, but since i don’t like pulp in my orange juice, chicken with stars (even super tiny stars, is not so cool.
