I have no idea what we were laughing at over our McDonald's breakfast, but I know I adored these tiny outings with my mom and grandmother. Mom was always prepared for a spontaneous picnic, with lawn chairs and a milk crate in the trunk. She knew Daw loved picnics and often packed up elaborate feasts. But sometimes a little fast food on the side of the road was just good enough!
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!
