If this were a friends episode it would be called "The One Where Adam and Meghan go on a Picnic."
But that's not really what happened (mostly because in real life Jagger can't be in hospitals). In real life, we had a pleasant morning with delicious food and great company. And Jagger enjoyed himself too. It was all very sickening and adorable. AND I LOVE PICNICS!
In addition to the items listen above, I also brought along some of these scones since I wanted a brunch-type vibe. I also threw in a container of assorted olives and peppadews. I like to eat lots of different things .

For you in my respect are all the world:
Then how can it be said I am alone,
When all the world is here to look on me?"
