July 2013 near Wharton, Texas
My last post about picnicking near the caboose, reminded me of our picnic at the teepee a year ago. Our picnic of coffee and donuts hardly qualifies for a picnic, but we were determined to enjoy the last minutes of our stay at the Teepee Motel on the old TX State Highway 60.
This crazy roadside treat was built in the 1940's when road travel was quite the thing. We remember driving by these teepee motel structures 12 years ago and they were abandoned and overgrown with weeds and vines. Luckily The Woods family won the lottery and brought them back to life!
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!
