Junior Museum in Tallahassee, Florida
It was April in 1968 and I was celebrating my 11th birthday with a few friends. I remember playing in the park, climbing on a caboose and having a scavenger hunt. I remember sitting on the porch of a cabin drinking bottles of pop. So then why are my friends looking so glum ? I don't even remember the names of these friends, except for Amy Simpson! She's the one who is actually smiling next to me as she peers over the gift I'm opening. I love it that I haven't seen Amy in a million years, but we communicate on Facebook...and she's the only one who looks happy at my birthday picnic! Thanks, Amy!
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!
