In a Word: Picnic

Memorial Day is just around the corner! To me it always feels like summer officially starts after Memorial Day; and what better to celebrate than with a picnic? Growing up my family always got together with a bunch of friends for a big pot luck picnic. I grew up in Michigan and some how it always managed to rain that day. We made the best of it though and had tons of fun anyway.

We just moved to a new neighborhood and there is this big park that I’m just dying to check out. One of these weekends I plan on breaking out our croquet set, packing a nice lunch and heading down there for some good old fashion picnicking. Do you have any Memorial Day plans? A picnic maybe? Just don’t forget the insect repellent or those pesky little ants might eat all your food!
