51 Picture of ants on a picnic blanket

“Nice day for a picnic,” Melanie remarked to her husband, as they spread out the blanket.

“Picnic,” chirped their daughter Leigh, reaching for a container.

“Wait, honey,” Joe said, scooping her up so Melanie could open the cooler.  “Mommy has to put everything out so we can eat.”

“What do we eat?”

“Well, there are sandwiches,” Joe began.  “And chips.  And apples.  And, maybe—”

“Bug,” said Leigh, pointing at the ground. 

Joe spotted the ant crawling across their blanket.  “Yes.”

“Bug,” Leigh repeated, as more ants converged on the food.

Melanie grinned.  “I think we need a different location.” 

Joe, Melanie, and Leigh Wilson.  Original characters.
