Brazos State Park - South of Houston
Road-Stop Picnics should hardly get mentioned on my picnic list. These rest stop meals aren't about the food or scenery. You usually just stumble out of your car and wolf down a quick sandwich before hitting the road again.
But last week when Don and I stopped on the way home from Galveston, we had a pretty amazing 20 minutes. We watched the Spanish moss sway as we nibbled on whatever crackers, cheese and peanut butter we had left in our cooler... we'd been away fora week. We didn't have a picnic basket or cloth, but we did have an alligator sighting and some pretty exotic bird sounds surrounding us. Cheers to the road side picnic!
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!
