My kids love going to the park by our house, and it's lovely and by the lake, so this is perfect for going there and just hanging out. It's large and super easy to clean. I just shook it off (the grass was damp but it is truly 100% waterproof. It isn't easy to get the buckles back on after looking how it did when it arrived, but I don't care if the blanket doesn't look perfect in it's holder..the blanket is amazing. We are going away on a weekend and this will be residing in the car with us for picnics and things. Highlyyyy recommend this.
