Last September while on a road trip, Don and I couldn't find an open cafe in the town of Louisiana, MO. How lucky that we had bread and peanut butter and fruit in the car when we came across this park, high on a bluff overlooking the river. We had a nice bit of shade, a gentle breeze and a view of 2 bridges and at least one passing train. Our perfect, unplanned picnic had an amusing connections to 4 states. We were in Missouri, in the town of Louisiana, looking down at the Mississippi River and across to the state of Illinois!
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!
