Davis Ranch Picnic
I’m so attracted to the idea of a picnic date during the spring and summer. There’s something romantic about packing a gourmet lunch or spread of snacks and enjoying a meal under the shade of an oak tree. Before we even got to Davis Ranch Retreat, I knew that I wanted to have that picnic and we packed accordingly.
We’ve posted about a picnic date before here (it was last year on the blog) but I felt like this second one turned out so much better. We’ve mentioned it before, but Davis Ranch was absolutely breathtaking and the property had a magical quality to it, making our picnic that much more enjoyable. You can check out our two posts on the ranch here and here to see more of the property and the treehouse that we got to stay in. Whether or not you can visit a ranch, this date would be easy to recreate at your local park or even in your own backyard. Be sure and tag us on Instagram (@one_swainky_couple) if you set up something like this!
I’m almost embarrassed to say that this is not our only picnic basket. I found this one at Target with the Opalhouse collection and couldn’t resist. While it only comes with glasses and silverware, it has plenty of room for your snacks and we often forgo plates on a picnic anyway.
I also got this backpack (obviously I had a successful Target Run) and was reminded of how easy and functional a backpack is when you’re traveling. This was great to have and I’m excited to start incorporating backpacks into our travel a bit more. Mine was only $26.99 but I’d love to start saving up for the ultimate backpack from Senreve. How dreamy would it be in this gorgeous lilac color?
B: I’m excited that my old Range Rover (who we lovingly named “Hass” after his dark green Hass avocado exterior any creamy beige interior) is making a debut on the blog! I purchased this truck as a fun hobby-project when Katherine and I were dating. Hass is a 2002 Rover, and although he was in nearly pristine condition when I bought him, my fun hobby-project quickly got complicated with oil leaks, new braking systems, drive shaft replacement, and suspension overhaul. After a year of on-and-off work, I am proud to say that I completed the transformation of Hass nearly entirely by myself! In the world of Rovers, he is actually a monster truck. Hass now sits 7 inches taller than his original stature; Katherine and I actually have to hop in and out Hass. We took him to the Davis Ranch Retreat for his big debut and he seemed to fit into the surroundings perfectly.
