On a beautiful fall Saturday in the Adrondacks, Matthew (my 9 year old) and I decided to set out on a picnic. We had picked up this green plaid metal picnic basket at a local sale. It was a bit rusty, but the wooden handles won me over. We brought it home, grabbed a few snacks and headed down our favorite trail.
This year is the prettiest fall I have seen in years. Or maybe we just happened to be upstate on just the right days this year.
Matty brought his camera too.
Billy and Forrest came along. Keeper came too, but she doesn't enjoy sitting still to have her picture taken like Forrest does.
And I realized that the $6 we spent on an old rusty plaid picnic basket was the best money we've spent in a long time. We should remember to take more time for picnics.
