What Is This?...a porch picnic

You know I love to play a guessing game on Saturday, don't you? What is this? Instead of coming back later and telling you, I'll just give you the scoop right now. How 'bout that!
This is a "porch picnic" prepared by the petite princess here at "A Romantic Porch". That's right, it was her idea, she found the items and packed it, dragged it to the porch, set it up AND called it a porch picnic.

I was quiet impressed by her selection. Where are the chips? "Come on, Momma! This will be SSOOO fun!" All I had to do was show up. And it was fun. It just took a few minutes to share that joy! A little break in the routine.

The big black picnic ant showed up too. I first saw him inspecting the basket, but he scurried along the edge of the quilt so quickly that I caught him in motion here. How did he know? I don't think she invited HIM!
Have a fun day!
Love, Rachel

Nothing like a porch picnic. I do that with my 4 and 6 yo grandchildren and they just love it.

Such a sweet thing for the little princess to think of. Oh my, the sweet memories you and she are making.
When my little grandson comes to my house he readies a picnic and we have it in the garden/dinning room, many times with toasted marshmallows over a candle! What wonderful memories he and I are making!
Have a wonderful day, Love you, Donnie

I love it! We used to have very similar picnics. We would sit out on our deck on a blanket or in the front grass, it just makes it special! You are a great mother!

Hugs, Sharon
