Summer means relaxing but sometimes its hard to get away. Have a fun staycation picnic this summer!

The summer has hit Chicago with a humid hammer, and it is crazy here! Despite all the humidity, I still like to plan summer activites with my boys. We are spending nearly every weekend at the pool, but there are other ways to fit in family time. Time for a staycation!
I have a hard time unplugging. Whether blogging or budgeting or mindlessly scrolling social media, it is hard to let go of the glow of the internet. I’m making it a point to unplug whenever I can and enjoy the moments available with my boys. An easy outing like a staycation picnic is a great way to spend family time in the summer!
This hot and cold travel bag is awesome for planning a picnic and saving $$! There are two compartments so that you can transport hot and cold meals together for a perfect family outing. By making food at home and taking it with us, we are able keep our outing budget friendly.
Now, there are plenty of great places to take a picnic, but my family is lucky. We have a family farm that has existed for over 100 years where we love to do our staycation trips. The house is very old and not always fun to cook in, so packing a picnic at our house before heading out saves us lots of headaches.
We have over forty acres of timber and land, and it’s a wonderful respite from our everyday lives. I love that my boys get to spend so much time where I myself spent my childhood.Summer means relaxing but sometimes its hard to get away.

For our picnic we packed some delicious Paulina sausages in buns, wrapped in tin foil to keep warm. We added in homemade macaroni salad, fruit, potato salad, and snacking veggies. Plenty of room left for condiments as well!
What sort of summer staycation plans do you have?
