Perfect Picnic Ideas For Mother's DayMacki West
Picnics are one of my favorite family activities and I like to keep them simple. With maybe a little travel. This year for Mother’s Day we are going on a picnic all the way to my mother’s front yard in the mountains of Southern Oregon. I’ve put together a variety of foods to serve; pick one or pick them all, whatever you choose it’s sure to be an amazing food filled day (don’t forget the wine!).
