However, having one proved more difficult than I anticipated because of the wonderful British weather. Sunny one minute, pouring with rain the next. So rather than venture out to our usual picnic venue, the duck pond, we decided to have our picnic in the garden so we could run inside if the weather turned. We were lucky enough for it to stay nice while we were out. The kids have been promised a trip to the duck pond tomorrow to feed the ducks.
I didn't really do anything special for the picnic, just a selection of the kids favourite foods, like chicken, salad, sausage rolls and fruit. My piéce de résistance was my home made hedgehog bread rolls with raisins for eyes.

Even though we only managed to go as far as our own back garden the kids had a lovely time and the picnic got a thumbs up all round.
