#74 Picnic in the Park
Utica Square in Tulsa
A concert in the park with balloons, blankets and baskets! It couldn't have been more perfect. My kids were in heaven. We were back visiting the city we pried our children from, when we moved to Texas the year before. We were back, sharing a feast with The Harts!
The Harts were our "across the street" neighbors. For 7 years our 2 families wore out a path in the asphalt between the 2 homes. Well sort of. We even wore out the freeway between Tulsa and Houston over a number of years. The kids are grown and living in 4 states. So wish we could gather the kids and parents for another picnic!
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!
