Anything Picnic Tuesday - Indiana has Right to Life Picnic

We found an article that will most likely either make you feel good inside or tear your insides apart.  The touchy topic of whether to be pro-life or pro-abortion.  On August 16th Allen County Indiana had a picnic with about 400 families showing up to celebrate the right to life.  Without getting into anymore details we want you to read the article and come back to tell us what you think.  Do you agree or disagree it is a good idea to have a picnic on such a touchy topic?  Do you think some of those families who attended would think differently if they were put into difficult situations?  Do you think someone should organize a pro-abortion picnic nearby?  Do you think there is nothing wrong with this picnic and look forward to hearing about more picnics with this theme?  Let us know what you think below.

Movie Monday - Personalized Low Cost Epic Picnic!

We found what we think to be a great picnic video for anyone who loves to go on picnics.  All of the ideas from the blanket design, silverware holders, food, and drinks were all self-made and on a low cost budget.  Make sure you watch this YouTube video and then see what we had to say about it.

We felt this video was very well done.  The blanket and the place mat / utensil holder were so simple yet creative.  You can really chose any simple design you want from the blanket.  Some picnic basket sets already have silverware in them and have a latch to keep them secure.  However, if you are in a low cost budget this dual use place mat and utensil holder idea is great.

The bug spray idea is great.  No unnatural preservatives.  Not to mention it's cheap, effective, and smells good!

The food and drinks look delicious and ascetically pleasing.  It seems you can really customize most of the items to whatever you prefer to have.

Always bring some fun games with to enjoy to beautiful day outside.  There are many options to choose from while on a picnic.

What did you think of this video?  Do you agree with our assessment?  What are some picnic ideas you like to use?

Movie Monday - Summer Picnic Food and Drink Ideas

We recently watched this short YouTube video about food and drink ideas for a summer picnic that we think you will enjoy.

We liked the fact that she used small fruit that not only goes well with cheese but also is not very sticky and messy.  The fact that she uses a hard and soft cheese is always a good idea when serving for a party or on a picnic.  The fruit and cheese you choose is really a matter of opinion of what your taste buds think.  

We really liked the salads in the jar idea.  The option of a salad is a healthy delicious side dish.  The jars are a compact way to transfer them while keeping them fresh and sealed up.

We loved the actual recipe for the sandwich and they way she wrapped it to give it an aesthetically pleasing look.  However, if you are serving for several people you may not have the option for as big of a sandwich.  You do have the option of cutting a couple sandwiches in half on in sections if this is the case.

We think she really missed a big beverage in this video as she did not mention wine at all.  This would probably be at the top of list of picnic drinks especially for the romantic on a date picnic setting.  There is nothing wrong with the drinks she mentioned however. 

Bottom line we felt this way overall a good video to look at.  It was short and it did have some good ideas.  Tell us what you think below.
