Badminton to follow.

Why do we have to leave the house when the men watch football?
The girl in the brown hood is CRYING.
Watch Out! Grandma’s got a snowball!
Clark promised the entire Griswald family that the annual picnic would be great! Somebody tell Cousin Eddie to get out of the shed.
“Shut up or you’re having a November wedding!”
The ladies felt free to live life to it’s fullest while the men were out ice fishing.
Growing up, when we traveled we always had to pack food and stop at a rest stop and eat at the grungy picnic tables there to save a few bucks (what I wouldn’t have given for a McDonalds instead). Looking at this it makes me think that they’re on a winter trip and did the same thing.
This is perfectly normal in Northern Canada. We’d be out in May having cookouts dressed like this with about a foot of snow in the ground. God I miss those days.
The “Golden Girls”, Kazakstani style.
… smokers everyone, and not a match among them to light the barrel.
“hope someone packed the sunscreen”
Having pic-a-nic whilst waiting to see “Moose and Squirrel!”
Double plus unfun.
I can see Russia from my house!
“Gee, it’s so cold that the slip and slide froze!”
teenagers guarantee to make any picture 105% more awkward.
These are clearly Marney’s Thanksgiving holiday rejects. After they were seen brandishing regulation size cereal spoons near the mashed turnip tureen, she relegated them to a nearby park to eat sandwiches off of the plastic bags they were packed in ad drink expired Vanilla Coke straight out of the can. And yes, she booted that uncouth baby of theirs as well!
You can tell what a nice day it was by all the people sitting at the picnic tables in the background! And…what is that “thing/structure” just on the other side of the fence?
That is Tsar Nicholas’ Palace!
Im sorry, but that vanilla coke has been photoshopped. Look at the shadows!!! The shadows!!!!!
I don’t know why everyone is so obsessed with the idea of photoshopping. There are no shadows because there is no sun!
Proudly sponsored by the good guys at Coca Cola.
Poor granny with her crumpled up tissue! Is no one having a good time in sub zero weather?
Is there a stroller in the foreground?
Where’s the baby?
Grandma is about to hurl all over the table.
G-g-g-glob-b-b-al-l-l w-w-w-arming. m-m-m-my A-A-A-A-**!!
In Soviet Russia, picnic eats you!
The future is so bright……I gotta wear shades!!
Hey look, they finally figured out how to get the good table at the park.
You know the one standing in the back is saying, “Smile, dammit! It’s not that cold!”
This little outing was so obviously the idea of the person taking the picture they are scowling at!
Been there, done that.
The lady in the red scarf has a gun in the pocket. Won’t let the other’s leave.
Hahaha awesome. Put some smiles on those mopey faces, dammit!
Oh my, I swear I have been there before!!!
its at der zoo
Grandma says, ” We ARE having a picnic today and you WILL have fun!”
so glad no one ever took a picture of me doing this – it does look ackward. Way back when I only had one kid and she loved the playground, I was there daily unless there was rain just so she would take a nap – my respite. I probably did 3 or 4 picnics a week at a playground. This stopped when I was pregnant with my second and my coat no longer fit around my belly so we started going to the mall playgrounds.
I’ve been to picnics like this. My fiance’s family always have their yearly get-together in October in a park. I don’t understand either but I dont think it’s too much fun to wear a coat and gloves to play cornhole or volleyball.
What is this “cornhole” that you speak about? It sounds dirty……or maybe it is an Ohio thing.
Ahahahaha! CORNHOLE!!! Yes, it is for sure an Ohio thing. I live in Ohio and here we make cornhole a drinking contest. This is why I love my country…we can turn anything into a drinking game. 🙂 Cornhole consists of throwing a bag of corn a certain distance trying to make it into the hole. Around here we deck this game out.
Cornhole is what Ohioans call bean bag tossing,lol. when I went to school in Cincy, I thought I was in for a wild night when my sorority sisters suggested a game with our brothers. Bean bag tossing is serious business there.
Lol, we do the cornhole game here in WV, also. And believe it or not, it is still a bean bag game for us as well. One local bar even has an outside deck with several levels and a game on each level! Great fun, especially after a few brews.
I now want to picnic in the cold and play cornhole while drinking vanilla coke. 🙂
Cornhole is popular in southern Illinois too!
yes please tell us how you play “cornhole” inquiring minds want to know.
The baby stroller is the craziest part. I sure hope that’s not a baby stroller…
I just wanna know where the baby is!
My parents live on a cold and wet island north of Scotland. They regularly have barbeques on the beach dressed like this. Such fun … NOT!
From Russia with Love.
Dang…somebody toss me a blanket
“I swear Marney! Next year, all entrees will be in regulation sized cassarole dishes! With a SERVING SPOON! AND A LID!! I know you CAN’T BE MORE SERIOUS! PLEASE! JUST MAKE THE AFTER THANKSGIVING PICNIC STOOOOOOOOOOOPPPP!!!”
this dramatization brought to you by vanilla coke
Awesome comment!! WIN!
The vanilla coke makes it seem legit
You’d think they would have at least brought warm drinks like tea or coffee. Brrr.
Even the little shed looks miserable and cold.
OMG…funniest comment yet! AHAHAHAAAA!!!!
I just noticed it- You’re right!!!!!! AWWW!
Nice product placement
In Soviet Russia, Picnic has you!
In Soviet Russia, you take picnic whether you like it or not!
Oh we so need one of the shirtless Putin pictures photoshopped into this scene. It would be perfect.
We. Are. Saving. Money. By. Coming. Here. In. The. Off. Season. Stop. Shivering.
LOL. saving. money. LOL
A sunny holiday in Siberia…
Damn – now I want a Vanilla Coke. Of course, judging by the lack of smiles, they’re drinking the Coca Cola wrong.
I’m glad I’m not the only one who developed a serious Vanilla Coke craving because of this pic! Maybe the Cokes are frozen and that’s why they’re so unhappy.
Ah! A bracing good day for a picnic of tongue sandwiches, kippers and pickled eggs! A bloody good time!
Lovely, I believe I saw this in a recent show on BBC.
I think it would be funnier if you said a nice dip in the pool was to follow. The really funny thing is that they appear to have a baby stroller with them and that one in the brown coat is either about to sneeze or cry…or both. If she does sneeze it is going all over that guy and his sandwich.
I once saw a documentery about some cold weather country, perhaps Greenland. I might be wrong. But in the show they said that many mothers walk around with their babies in their strollers, even on freezing days. They believe the cold air is best for babies. They even park the strollers (and babies) outside stores and cafes when they go inside. The babies are, of course, bundled well.
i saw that too, its sweden.
My Grandmother did that to my Dad up in Canada where they lived when he was only a couple months old. He wound up with Scarlet Fever & almost died.
Come on, folks, you don’t get scarlet fever from being cold!
yeah I saw that on OPRAH.
It’s not a stroller… it’s Grandma’s walker.
That’s a stroller. Grandma’s solid – she took in all that arctic cold air as baby.
Yes, I think it’s a stroller too. Baby’s not in the photo ’cause BABY’S taking the picture!
Summer fun in Siberia!!
^^^ this, lol.. first thing i thought of
I was just about to type the same thing! LOL
I know this place!!! This is actually at the Zoo in Boston. Fun place but maybe not so much during the off season lol
