One of the things I love about summer is the chance to get out and go for a ride on my pretty pink bike. And it’s even more fun when I have a friend join me and we breeze through town to get to a delightful park on the other side for a leisurely picnic and chat. There is something so wonderful about doing the things that you used to do as a kid. And we have a lot of beautiful bike trails in our city to explore!
I got my pretty new wheels about 5 years ago, and I try to get out as often as I can, but sometimes making a date with a friend is a sure way to make the ride actually happen.
On this day, I packed a picnic lunch for a friend and I to enjoy.
The picnic I created included simple sandwiches, cookies, green apples and strawberry lemonade with lots of ice in mason jars, and it all fit nicely into my bike basket.
We didn’t go for a very long ride, but it was nice just the same. And after spreading out a blanket, the munchies and the lemonade were perfect.
The pink lemonade was so refreshing. I included lots of ice! You have to have ice!
Have you had a chance to picnic this summer? I hope so!

Ohh your picnic looks great! And i love the bike!!! I need one with a basket too! 🙂 I love picnics in the summertime, I always feel like a sandwich or anything else just tastes so much better when you are eating it outside, having a picnic! 🙂
What a great picnic! Reminds of the days of being a kid when we would go on picnics.. Your bike is so pretty!.. It looks like you had a really wonderful time. Thank you SO much for sharing it with us..

What a pretty picnic – does that pink bike make everything look tastier or is it my imagination? I have been on one picnic this summer, but I have more planned.

Everything about this post is dreamy and makes me want to head out on a bike ride asap…the only thing is my bike isn't nearly as cute as yours and I don't have a bike basket in site. Great post! 🙂
