Yesterday we decided to enjoy the beautiful weather and took a picnic to Sibbald Point Provincial Park. The kids too their metal detectors and scoured the beach looking for treasures but only managed to find a few pennies, a metal tent beg and a toy car. There were lots of pop tabs and bottle caps, and a few nails...even a bobby pin (which was hard to find! It looked like a little twig covered in dirt.)
As I didn't have much at home for making a picnic, we stopped at a grocery store on the way. It's actually kind of hard to find things to put together a picnic when you don't have plates, utensils or anything. I managed to buy plates and some plastic cutlery, but cutting into the wrapping of a piece of kielbasa with a flimsy plastic fork wasn't easy. It was doable, but I mangled the kielbasa pretty badly.
I think I'll have to put together a little kit for impromptu picnics to keep in the car. At the very least, we should keep a steak knife in the glove compartment...except after we use it and I bring it in to wash, I probably won't remember to put it back.
