Inside Picnic in 1992
This little table was probably the best investment of all the kiddie equipment we purchased back in the day. Not only did it travel from Missouri to Oklahoma with us, but it traveled from backyard to driveway to front yard to inside the house... when it rained. But this photo is not about the table, it's about the kids. This is the earliest photo I have of my Heidi and Scott (r) with our good buddies, Nathalie and Jack. I also think this is the only photo I have of these 4 where they are not leaping or grinning or clowning for the camera! They were a delightful, energetic foursome... bright and eager and silly! How I would love to sit down at a picnic table with these 4 adults right now!
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!
