Missouri in 1988
For my birthday, I chose a picnic with Don and 18 month old Heidi... on a gravel bar, somewhere south of St. Louis. Heidi looks happy and Don looks like he's soaking up the first tanning sun of the season.
I love seeing the old tulip quilt! I once used that quilt as my storytelling "Magic Quilt", in classes with kids. That was before we wore it out as a picnic quilt. Not wise. On the edge of the photo, I see the 10-ton video camera bag. There must be some footage of this day somewhere!
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!
