National Picnic Week!?
Yesterday I heard it was International Picnic Day, so I posted a photo. But now I hear we are nearing the end of National Picnic Week... which I'm guessing is mostly a British thing. So today, my sweet picnic partner, Don suggested we stop for a picnic on our way driving towards Austin.
We've passed this roadside stop about a billion times in the past 15 years, but we've never stopped. This time we packed lunch and enjoyed a short break while the cars rushed by on Highway 71. I had an extra treat when I got to meet a cow named "Gringo" who had stopped at another picnic shelter. Gringo was lounging in the back of a truck while his owners walked the dogs. Gringo was headed to another farm to "Do his business." I was told. I hope that meant to become a father and not become a steak. ?? I pondered that thought over my tuna sandwich!
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!
