Recently I thrifted a couple of nice leather baseball mitts for a few bucks each. Playing catch is an easy way to waste the day away at a beautiful park like this one.
A deck of cards, cribbage board, or the game of Uno are also must-haves for relaxing on the picnic blanket beneath a shady tree.
Favorite picnic eats include: prosciutto, sharp cheeses, green olives, melons, and crisp crackers.
But most important is letting go, breathing in the fresh air, and simply enjoying a little time with the ones you love.
