Playing and Picnicking!
It's been a long time since I've been on a picnic with a child! Our picnic yesterday reminded me of the picnics of my childhood, when the table part of the picnic was very short. Don and I had fun with our Great-Nephew, Colden during a recent visit.
When we first sat down, Colden clung to his ball, frowning at the aggressive looking ducks as they approached the table. After a little fried chicken and cheese, we did the playground thing... reminding the ducks now and then, "Playgrounds are for kids, not for ducks." Sadly a few hours later, Colden came down with a fever and now these photos seem all the sweeter.
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!
