Hebrew National’s Better-Than-A-Picnic Picnic Kickoff Event in NYC

Bright and early Saturday morning, a group of Philly mom bloggers gathered to hop a bus to NYC for Hebrew National’s Better-Than-A-Picnic Picnic Kickoff event.  After a late start and a defective bus (they sent a replacement, and we were able to wait comfortably at a Wawa, so it wasn’t TOO bad, all things considered) we arrived at Randall’s Island for the picnic 2 hours late, slightly nauseous, but in good spirits.

The event supported the Food Bank for New York City.  Here, two PSMM members, Sherry and Valerie help their daughters decorate lunch bags for the Magic School Lunch Box program.

We had a great time visiting with friends and making new ones.

Hundreds of hot dogs were cooked and served in this enormous airstream bus.

We’ve come a long way from last year’s event when our husbands grilled hot dogs squatting over portable grills.

Big thanks to Emily and Cooper of The Motherhood for organizing this fun event and Hebrew National for feeding half of NYC on Saturday.  For future picnic locations, check out the Hebrew National Better-Than-A-Picnic Picnics circle at The Motherhood.

PSMM moms in attendance were Jo-Lynne, Whitney, Cecily, Melissa, Kelly, Robin, Sherry and Valerie.
