Day #85: Give a Picnic for Friends or Family

Day #85: Give a Picnic for Friends or Family 1

Stephanie's sister, brother-in-law, and two nephews live about two hours from Asheville. Today, they met us for a fun-filled day of hanging out together and sightseeing.

We met at 11:30am for a picnic. The Appalachian Mountains are beautiful this time of year - perfect for being outdoors. Stephanie and I brought simple fixings for all of us to eat - strawberries, melon, honey-roasted turkey, cheese, bread, carrots, and crackers.

The picnic was a great way to kick off our day. Our families have a lot of fun together so we miss them already.

  1. One of the fun things I remember doing as a kid is having picnics! We couldn't afford to eat out often or go to amusement parks and things like that - but Mom knew how to make a simple day fun - with a picnic a frisbee and the great outdoors!

  2. a picnic. What a beautiful idea. We are all so busy - this is like giving people peace and a slice of well-deserved time. What a gift!

Our family spent 2011 traveling the USA in an RV, striving to intentionally "give every day" for the glory of God. We interviewed CEOs of nonprofits and served alongside over 40 organizations and churches.
