Big Bend National Park in April 2011
It's obvious what was memorable about this picnic. How often do you get the chance to have a picnic in a teepee? Don and I had just spent a few days in west Texas, camping in temperatures above 100 degrees.
We wanted to stop for sandwiches on our drive between Big Bend and Marfa, but knew it would be too hot. When we spotted this crazy roadside spot, we couldn't resist! Inside the strange metallic structure it was surprisingly cool!
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!
