So, instead we have pictures from one of our typical backyard picnics, featuring some of our favorite Kraft products. I love the Cracker Barrel cheeses, the all Beef Oscar Mayer Wieners, Country Time Lemonade is a regular staple around here for summer picnics and the new Wheat Thins Crunch Stix have quickly become a family favorite.

  42. My favorite family picnic memory is from the first time we picnicked under the blossoming cherry trees at the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC. Even though there were a lot of people there (it was during the National Cherry Blossom Festival), there was a sort of reverent hush…the blossoms would come drifting down with every light breeze, and the sun sparkled on the water while the Jefferson Monument gleamed in the background. It was an unexpected atmosphere and not one I've experienced in any other place we've picnicked. asthenight at gmail dot com
