Summer Picnic Menu Plan

One of my favorite things to do with the girls is pack a summer picnic lunch and head out for some adventure. We hike around our property looking for lizards and eventually need to rest and snack.

I enjoy putting together nutritious food that gives us energy, but is easy to transport and clean up. Here is a full picnic lunch idea if you have summer plans to kayak, head to a park or just hang out in the backyard on a blanket!
