Philbrook Art Museum in Tulsa
One summer we took visiting grandparents to the Museum for a special picnic in the gardens. We spread the quilt on the grass and enjoyed our feast while being entertained by storytellers and ballet performances.
The thing that startles me about this photo is that I see 3 year old Scott eyeing the camera, but there are no signs Heidi. This wouldn't be disturbing if I didn't remember a little mishap we had earlier. At the house we had rushed to load up 2 cars before heading off to the Philbrook. Not wanting to miss the shows we leapt into the cars and our mini caravan headed down the street. It was at a stop sign that I rolled down my window to make sure Heidi was in the other car. Oops. A quick U-turn and we were back home. Luckily our busy 5 year old was quite unaware that she'd been left behind. I'd still feel better if I saw her in this photo!
Mom's Picnic List
In honor of my mother on the first Mother's Day since she has passed, I dedicate a new list... Mom's Picnic List!
Mom loved picnics and she raised her kids to appreciate the simple pleasures of food, family and friends in the great out of doors.
I will spend a year reflecting on as many past picnics as I can remember. But, I'll also
appreciate the here and now by creating new picnic experiences. My goal is to share at least 60 picnic memories, since that's how many years Mom was a mom!
Let the picnics begin!
