Spring Picnic

Pack the picnic basket 
with all the foods we love,
take along a frisbee, 
a baseball, bat and glove.

Bring a blanket to sit upon,
bug spray, and sunscreen, too,
get the kids into the car
with the dog, and me and you.

Finally we are on our way
to have a day of fun,
searching for the perfect spot
to frolic in the sun.

A grassy knoll and shade tree
beside a lazy creek; 
pull over, this looks just right
for a picnic quite unique.

Setting up a lavish feast,
joy we can't contain,
our happiness is dampened
when it begins to rain.

  2. What a great gathering of friends and family! It still looks a little cool as evidenced by those jackets.

  3. Beauty, fun, family or friends, good food... Good day!

    Blessings, Debbie

  4. I love doors! On the floor of the living room basket and all. Hubby is so very understanding of my dislike of nature getting all over me. lol
