#57 A Zoo Picnic
Tulsa in Spring of 1993
This is a hard photo to decipher at a glance. Besides recognizing my own two kids and our sweet friends Nathalie and Jack, it's hard to tell where we are and what's going on.
I do recall the circus-like tent that provided shelter from a rainstorm during a symphony performance at the Tulsa zoo. I don't actually remember a picnic, but I see an apple in Scott's hand and I don't think Milissa and I (the moms) ever took our kids anywhere without food. I remember the coziness of our quilt and the rain on the tent and I remember the Mennonite family sitting nearby.
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!
