Picnic with Mom
It's exactly one month until Mother's Day. I've already met my goal of sharing about 60 picnics to honor my Picnic-Loving-Mom!
But here is yet another photo of Mom picnicking. It must be 2010. My sister Jennifer was on one of her many visits to help out with Mom after she moved to Texas with Alzheimer's. I loved those visits when Jenni and I would spend a week doing all Mom's favorite things. We squeezed in a lot of favorites just at the picnic table. We brought books and word games and favorite foods like egg salad sandwiches. We even got Mom on a swing for a bit. This photo makes me miss Mom...and my sister.
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!
