For Mother’s Day this year I want to go on a picnic with the family With a little planning and some Meal Plan Monday  picnic recipes at the end of the post I think we are off to a good start with our picnic menu. I am also sharing my top must have picnic gifts perfect which are perfect ideas for picnic season and Mothers Daygiving. Have you ever considered taking your mom on a Mother’s Day picnic?

I just love getting outdoors and would rather be taken out to eat on a less crowded day to a restaurant. I hate the lines, the Mr. hates the spending extra money and my daughter is so picky we end up eating where she would like to eat. Doesn’t sound like a fun Mother’s Day to me. Does it to you?

This year I asked instead of hanging out at home if we could take a drive and eat a picnic lunch at our local botanical gardens and finish the drive home with a stop at the beach! Now that sounds like a fun Mother’s Day to me how about you?

I’d pack my camera of course for taking photos of flowers and if I am lucky enough spot some hummingbirds or butterflies. Then at the beach some photos of the sun setting. I want to keep things light only what we need and asked them to purchase me a picnic basket. I never really have had a good one or even a pretty one. It’s always an ice chest which in most cases other than camping was too big for picnic needs.
