We used to go all the time when we had young children -to all sorts of interesting places in WA -now that there are no kids, it is a rare event that any of my friends organise a picnic -we would probably have trouble getting up and down from the ground nowadays!!
I can't sit on the grass, as my legs won't work to stand up!
I feel sitting on a blanket on grass is lovely...but just can't now.
We use too!
Lots of fun, and when my boys were little they loved it.
The last time we were on a picnic was for my mother's 95th birthday at the end of November, '16. We gave up a 2 week cruise in the south pacific to be there with her. She has very bad dementia, & 5 mins after leaving the picnic with my sister, she wouldn't have remembered being there at all, but we all enjoyed the day anyway. Our youngest daughter even flew up from Melbourne for the picnic!
