camera, purse, warm jackets,nappies and wipes, additional extras when needed - sun lotion, more food and hats.
What are your Summer Days out must-haves ?

Today's adventure was a couple of hours in a friend's wood, complete with camp fire, wheel-barrow rides and ladder climbing ( for O )
Now waiting for biggest boy to call, ready for picking up from his adventuring ... a friend's 16th birthday sleepover, where I am sure there was very little sleeping !

Sounds like picnicking time to me!

My summer day today is Kayla is fishing with her poppy, Katie is camping, Monty is at work, and Emily and I slept in and are going to head outside soon to enjoy the cool air before it gets hot. :)

Bathing suits and hats on...basket contains drinks, snacks (fruit and hummus and crackers), sunscreen, change of clothes, towels, blanket to sit on, mama's knitting, an extra diaper and some wipes...love summer outings. We come home, hang up the towels and swimsuits, wash out food containers...then it starts all over again the next day!

That looks so good. Your mention of hot chocolate for a summer picnic made me smile, I could use a hot chocolate on this winter's morning.
