Here are some pictures from the picnic we had last night on our porch! It was so fun ~ I wish I had thought to eat out there before now. There was a slight breeze which kept the bugs away and I had red and white citronella candles around the porch railing, though they did not stay lit very long with the breeze.
I used old white sheets for the underneath layers of table coverings and dyed them in tan Rit dye ~ I had tried tea-staining, but it did not work the way I was hoping for.
David cooked hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill and we had chips, carrots, apple slices, baked beans, and apple pie with ice cream. I poured water and sweet tea into pint size canning jars and place a lemon slice in each one. Then put all the jars into a big enamelware tub filled with ice to keep everything cold and looking cute! :)
David's Dad came and my friend Christy and her two children ~ her husband is in the military, so this was our opportunity to thank them for their involvement in serving our country. We played croquet and the two little girls enjoyed playing and taking a wagon ride!
