Lisa's Picnic

By Kathleen W. Redman
1     It was so beautiful outside. The sky was bright blue. There were puffy white clouds in it. The sunshine felt warm on Lisa's arms. She wanted to have a picnic.
 
2     She ran inside.
 
3     "I want to go on a picnic, Mom," she said. "I want to go to the park. We can take some sandwiches. It will be fun!"
 
4     "That sounds like a good idea," her mother said. "You go get ready. I will call your aunts and uncles. Maybe they would like to go, too."
 
5     Lisa changed clothes. She put on her best running shoes. She tied a yellow ribbon in her hair. The picnic was going to be so much fun!
 
6     Mother packed things for the picnic. She put a tablecloth in the basket. She put paper plates and cups in the basket. She put potato chips and pickles in the basket. She put a bag of cookies and some apples in the basket, too. Last, she made some egg salad and put it in the cooler.
 
7     By the time Lisa and her mother were ready, three of her uncles and four of her aunts had arrived.
 
8     They all got in two cars and rode to the park. Lisa had such a good time!
 
9     She looked for pretty rocks in the creek with Uncle David and Uncle Corey. She climbed a tree with Uncle Justin. Aunt Kayla and Aunt Mary played jump rope with her. Aunt Nina and Aunt Traci showed her how to play hopscotch.
