A Crafternoon Picnic

22nd May 2012

The other day, Radeo and I packed up some adventure supplies, headed over to Central Park for a crafting picnic!It was a little rainy, she used the skills that she gained from watching episodes of Man Vs Wild and I used the skills I got from years of obsession with Martha Stewart left us with the a fun tent friend to keep us dry!

We gathered a couple of thick broken pieces of wood and attached them to a sturdy low hanging tree branch. Radeo found some vines with leaves attached and strung them around the wooden posts. While she was doing the important grunt work, I saved the environment by cutting  some leaves of my own. I folded construction paper into 4ths, cut them to get 4 leaves per paper sheet, taped them into rows, then strung them to each other (and the tent) with thread!

The tent did a GREAT job at keeping us from getting to soggy in the rain.

It also gave us a place to observe young men who were canoodling around us.

Our picnic involved:

  • some peanut butter and jelly “sammies”
  • mimosa
  • gummy bears
  • chips and salsa
  • Milano cookies

I finally found a use for the iPad I got for my birthday when I realized the speaker is loud enough to play music off of.

My playlist involved a lot of:

Django Reinhardt

Talking Heads

The Clean

We were having a hard time telling this little lurking squirrel that he could come and join our picnic.
We tried speaking in our best nature voices and luring him with food on string (it works for fish!)

Finally we found out that he LOVED our pb&j sammies!
The gloomy picnicday was a nice premature start to our summer
