The gang is hanging around Tuttle Shoe Repair, one of their favorite hang-out spots. The place is owned by Mr. Tuttle, and he doesn't seem to mind their mischief. One morning as they're hanging around, a limousine comes around, and a nursemaid emerges with Mary Kornman to get Mary's shoes repaired. The boys immediately compete for her attention and she leaves behind a vase of flowers as a gift for their attention. Meanwhile, Mr. Tuttle's back pension has come in and he treats the boys to a picnic out in the country, but his old car doesn't seem to be able to make the trip. It threatens to break down on them before coming to a final stop in an open field. The boys split up in trying to fix it and exploring an old barn, scaring away an itinerant hiding inside. Farina, meanwhile, has discovered a watermelon patch, returning to the broken-down car later with his stomach swollen in size, but it's really a massive watermelon he's trying to hide from the others. They discover it and they all dig in for a nice picnic.
