Before I share the winner of the giveaway, I thought I would share my dad's comment on his ideal picnic:
Grilling out on the farm with my sons, daughter, best son-in-law, and the grand children. Nature is part of everything. Connecting with animal which provides me a calm I wish I could describe and I see it's affect on all. The open space with all it's borders edged with nature ever changing beauty. Watching the grand kids look on their faces as the fish pops out of the water. The best part of all is watching all the expressions of love and having the deep sense of family.To me this is the best of life. This is one of the reason we take the time and effort to go on a picnic. -Pops
For a man who doesn't take pen to paper much (or keystrokes to the computer), I thought those words were so beautiful. Dad, thanks for taking the time to write that. Very sweet.
Thanks for all sharing your picnic dreams with me. The winner of the giveaway is Jennifer N, so please email me your address and I'll send your sweet tote to you.
