Let’s Have a Picnic!

Did you know that in 2000, a 600-mile picnic took place on July 14 in France to celebrate the first Bastille Day of the new millenium? Or that the first picnic table was designed in the late 1800s? Or what the fact that one of the earliest accounts of a picnic comes from tales of Robin Hood? His men would informally eat cheese, bread, and ale under trees!  Yep!  Fun, right?  Well, you all know by now that I’m nothing if not full of – sometimes useless, sometimes helpful! – trivia!

Anyhoo… In honor of National Picnic Day I also went a little “Pinterest Picnic” crazy… Here are a few of my favorite picnic images that are inspiring me to celebrate today!

These photos were just enough to get me and Buzz out of the house and to the beach this afternoon for a small (sandy!) picnic. I had some fruit while Buzz had a few kibble treats. It was a fabulous time.

Did you go on a picnic today?
