When it says the certain day was yesterday, and the day before yesterday is yesterday, they are equal to each other. You are only confused by all the words. So, the certain day is the day before yesterday, which is two days ago. Then, the family will go on the picnic the day after tomorrow from the certain day. The family will go on the picnic today. If it rained the day before yesterday, then the family will be able to go on the picnic today.

Suppose the certain day is Sunday, it would've been yesterday on Monday. The day before yesterday with respect to Monday is Saturday. Saturday would've been yesterday on Sunday.  So, Sunday was yesterday (on Monday) when Saturday was yesterday (on Sunday)?? The first sentence does not make sense.
