Well, We Can Picnic in the Garage

The Fourth of July is one of my favorite days in summer.  I love hosting family and friends at our house for a feast, like Thanksgiving in July, just picnic style.  And on the grill.  And without turkey.  Or stuffing.  (But we do eat pie, so it's relatively similar, right?)

Each year we roast s'mores, we play bean bag corn hole toss, and we arm our kids with sparklers so they can run around in close proximity to each other while holding fire.  We enjoy spending the whole day in our yard, which always has freshly cut grass in preparation for the day's outdoor celebration. 

But today, it rains.  It thunders and pours throughout the afternoon, like it's its job.

So, we'll picnic in the garage instead.  Picnics are portable; they go where you take them, after all, and today we'll take it into the garage.

Rain or shine, you can't stop a favorite summer day.
