Plan to Go On A Picnic
One of the Roosevelt family’s favorite outdoor activities was going on picnics. All throughout the nice weather months President and Mrs. Roosevelt would take every opportunity they got to picnic with friends and family. Sometimes they set up their basket right out on their own lawn, other times they would seek out special places in the woods near a pond or a stream.
Why not plan a picnic for your own family or friends?
Picnics can be as fancy or as simple as you want them to be. All they require is nice friends or family, nice food, and a fun place to set up and enjoy.
