keeping the crumbs outside.







One of my favorite things about this time of year is that almost all of our meals take place outside.

Last year, we demolished our beloved picnic table. It gave us many good memories and meals. But it was rotting.

At the first sign of warm weather, my husband built a new and better one. This time, he used redwood and designed it to my liking. It's 8 feet long, 40 inches wide, and not too heavy.

And it's convenient that I can move it with Parker's help whenever I want to rearrange the patio furniture.

You are so right on!
We're moving in 4 weeks to So. Cal and I am most excited about our backyard that we can start eating in again. I refused my kids popscicles this whole year because we did not have a backyard to eat them in.
Awesome picnic table!
