it's our summer tradition to catch an evening viewing of wind in the willows at the botanical gardens. the kids love it. the adults love it. it is actually one of my favorite events each year. it took me all day to organize our picnic basket with a newborn in tow. i prepared freshly made salsa for corn chips and quinoa salad for the adults. along with hummus for corn chips, strawberries, and banana bread for the little people.
i secretly love seeing what other families bring in their own baskets. i am always shocked by the assortment of things kids eat, and i am referring to the healthy options. even with that said, it was the bar of dark chocolate being passed around one family's picnic quilt that really caught my eye.
