    When is the last time you went on a picnic?

    Does cookouts at the park count? It was two years ago planned by a nephew for a family gathering. Nothing like the old-fashioned-lay-a-cloth-on-the-ground-picnic-basket-filled-with-goodies type. I never been on a real picnic like that before.

    Wow! I'd say some one was really creative.

    I never enjoyed picnics.
    Picnic food is the only type of food I don't like, except for burgers and hot dogs cooked on a charcoal grill.
    We never did that. It was much easier to cook food on the grill at home.

    The last picnic I remember was at Stone Mountain in GA.
    The yellow jackets were soooooo annoying.

    @ Emma Smith I never liked picnics all that much either. Of course, I'm in Florida and the flies, mosquitos and other bugs come around.

    We often picnic/BBQ at this idyllic spot about 10 mins from our place.

    Haven"t done the picnic scene for many years. The kid years we did a lot of picnics, parks, lakes, back yards, was fun then, now it seems like it"s just a bug fest, guess they have to eat too, they should make their own picnic basket. :mad::mad::mad:.

    We have one or two picnics each year at a park near where we live. There is a lake where we can fish or hire a row boat and explore. I do enjoy doing this.
