Breakfast Picnic with Son & DIL
This hardly looks like a picnic, but it was a special one. We were having breakfast burritos and coffee at the National Mall in D.C. Our bench gave us a view of our first stop that morning, The Lincoln Memorial.
We started out early on a warm July day. Scott called in our burrito order for pick up. Chali (who took the pic) helped get their puppy to "doggy daycare". We reached the Mall before the crowds and heat became miserable. We carried leftovers in case we found someone hungry, but the crowds seemed to be well fed!
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!
