I do a lot of picnics, so that's nothing new. But for my birthday weekend, my family joined in on a lake picnic that included some of the old picnic goodies from the '50's.
...the old "tartan cooler and pelican thermos...straw picnic baskets and a retro plaid picnic basket as a gift from my daughter.
We played '50's music...on the I-pod and did a little hula hooping on the dock. We played some Frisbee...which was invented in the '50's.
And best of all we sat on a breezy April afternoon and pigged out on chicken salad with grapes and cashews... and talked and laughed...
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
