Welcome to the picnic!
We are looking forward to celebrating summer with you!
Today we will kick off Picnic Table Talk with an ice breaker! We would love to get to know all of the picnic participants. Mister Linky will help us out. Please take a few moments to write an introductory post on your own blog. Leave your link here and we will all be able to learn a little more about eachother.
We will each be writing our own Picnic Table Talk post on our personal blogs and linking to the picnic as well. To give you an example here are 2 sample party introductions.

If you're looking for ideas on what to eat at your next picnic, Valerie at Frugal Family Fun has put together a list of her family's favorite cheap picnic foods. Starting Monday we'll be sharing some some picnic dishes, along with a treat everyone loves...a weekly winner!
We've noticed that Mr. Linky has been acting up all over blogdom, he's supposed to make an appearance on our post today, but if you don't see him please leave your name and post link in the comments so we know who's having an open house today!
Please leave us comment with a topic you'd be interested in discussing around the picnic table this summer too. It can be a topic you'd like advice on, an area you need ideas for, anything you'd like our community's input on. We can't promise we'll cover everyone's suggestion, but we'd love feedback on what you're interested in!
