Last Weekend at Lake LBJ
Don and I have had many a picnic under this little shelter in Sunrise Beach, TX. It's usually breezy and peaceful. We bring books and games and often cool off with a dip in the lake. This photo taken on Labor Day doesn't capture the amusing happenings on the dock, or at the boat ramp or on the water.
We watched a family of 15 comically fumble coolers, rafts, wheelchairs and dogs onto their pontoon boat. We listened to an outrageous concert blasting from the speakers of a party boat. We happily chatted with a young couple who asked to share our shelter because the gnats were swarming near their waterside table. Just what one would expect at a Labor Day picnic at a lake!
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!
