Sooner or later, the precious summer sun will bid goodbye. That’s why, as much as possible, I make sure that my daughter and our entire family will get to enjoy every last bit of it. Last weekend, our entire gang decided to have a picnic at the park and I invited some of our neighborhood friends to join us. I even organized some outdoor games both for the kids and adults. Most of our family friends are free during weekends, so they were able to meet us at the park. We had so much fun that we agreed to have it as a regular weekend activity.
Last week, I was tasked to prepare our snacks. I know for a fact that it would be very tiring and requires a lot of effort. Good thing Walmart, my ultimate SNACKATION destination, is just nearby. I just learned about some go-to summer snack solutions which literally cut my preparation time into half. I made these bite size sandwiches and filled them with Jif Whips, Smucker’s Strawberry Jam and Smucker’s Squeeze Grape. I also packed some Uncrustables, JiF To Go Dippers for the adults along with some ice cold fruit juices and Smucker’s Fruit Fulls, which all the kids loved the most. All these goodies filled our picnic basket and believe it or not, I was able to prepare everything in less than an hour.
Everyone had so much fun, especially when we played the parlor games. Some of the games were race games wherein parents and their child are paired together. It was also a great bonding activity that all parents should have with their kids. They are not always young and the time will come when they will no longer enjoy our company as much as they do now.
Last weekend’s picnic was truly a success and I am thankful that we were able to experience it with our neighbors. Most likely we’re going to do it again at least once a month. As long as we don’t have other plans, we will definitely join the fun. So, I suggest to organize your own weekend activity right away!
