My family enjoys picnics quite frequently. Sometimes, we enjoy our backyard, and sometimes we visit the park. Many times we visit our favorite lake while we swim, lie in the sun, and eat our scrumptious picnic. I put together a list of our absolutely essential items, along with a few we do not own, but dream about owning one day soon. Here’s to summer!
1. Canoes or Kayak’s

My family does not own a canoe or a kayak, but we rent them every time we visit Current River. Our favorite vacation place ever, the boys canoe and the girls sometimes join them. We enjoy the river so much! Our plan is to buy a canoe soon! Until then, we will continue to rent.

What would a picnic be if you didn’t have the perfect “spot?” Maybe it is your back yard, or maybe it’s the local state park, but wherever it is, use it before the summer is over. My kids will always remember our picnics because we pretty much picnic in the same spot year after year.
3. Picnic Blanket

Have you ever went on a picnic, and we you were ready to eat, didn’t have anything to place on the ground? I have, and it took a lot of fun out of the day because we left itchy and covered in ants and chiggers! I have learned it is best to keep your blanket with your picnic supplies, and then you will never be without one!
