The Wordless Wednesday photo was when the mates come round.
This is BG when he was just 3. We’d planned a teddy bears picnic with friends at our local stream but for various reasons his playmates couldn’t make it so we rescheduled.
We had our own pretend picnic at home.
Not every disappointment turns out so well.

Awww, what a sweet little picnic. Great way to turn a disappointment around. Thanks for sharing.
You are so creative! I wouldn’t have even thought of this. I am not to creative as a mom. I love to go to my mom’s house because she comes up with all kinds of things!

Great idea. My husband and I have carpet picnics in the winter here in Northern KY all the time. We set up a blanket, wine, cheese fruit and what the snow fall outside.
