For our day at the park we brought our new picnic blanket, another new "favorite" of mine. I'm in love with it because it has a waterproof backing that I can easily wipe off between washings and the other side is a soft fleece. It also came with its own carrier. We have had a couple other picnic blankets in the past that just pale in comparison. We also packed a cooler with snacks and drinks and brought along some special treats for Hazel. Andy and I like to break out the big guns to keep her entertained on long trips, so we packed one of those big, long-lasting chew treats and also a new toy.
After Hazel spent time swimming in the lake, we laid our blanket out, ate our picnic, and read for the rest of the day.
Our beach chairs have been re-purposed and are now our park chairs.
