Queeny Park in St. Louis, Missouri in 1987
My mother, grandmother, daughter and I had many a picnic in Queeny Park. (I wish we'd had a camera timer so Mom could be in the photo) We would bring the little blue hook-on chair for Heidi and park close to a table so Daw didn't have far to walk with her cane. I love the way Heidi and Daw are side by side, sipping away! Heidi's eyes look droopy and I'm sure moments later she reached for Bobby (the bunny dangling near her leg) and put a thumb in her mouth.
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!
