#4 Beside the Missouri River
A Fall Day in 1985
I remember this warm fall day, picnicking across the road from Pere Marquette Lodge in Grafton, Illinois.
I don't remember the food, although it looks like a bottle of champagne. Mostly I remember talking about wanting to have kids. The following October, our daughter Heidi was born.
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!
