Picnic in the Lost Pines - April 2008
I love this picnic image with the Route 66 table cloth, cluttered with wine glasses, cutting board, lantern, cooking spoon and a gift bag. And of course the best part of this picnic memory is the fact that my kids were seated at the table, helping me celebrate my birthday.
It was such a beautiful setting with the tall pines and lush growth. I'm so grateful to have this photo because only a few years later most of the "Lost Pines" in the Bastrop area were burnt to the ground in a month long forest fire. I'm glad we didn't' know the future when we enjoyed our meal that evening.
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!
