Summer Fun with Sailboat Snackers

This post is sponsored by JELL-O brand. All opinions are my own. 

In my recent post Inexpensive Summer Activities for Families, I shared my excitement for the upcoming summer season. We headed outside for a family picnic and activities, and we had a blast! Check out how my family kicked off the summer holiday! We started our summer adventures with a bright and cheery, yellow-themed picnic. Check out some of our favorite yellow foods: yellow fruit kabobs, potato chips, lemonade, yellow candy, peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
