Along with the craziness and business of high school graduation, we managed to get in a totally great Mother's Day. My request this year was for a picnic at the river bottom. (That's what we call the park that is by the river. I think the "bottom" comes from having to drive down into the valley floor. The river runs at the bottom of coulees that rise up on both sides of it.) Anyway, a good 'ole hot dog roast with homemade macaroni salad and marshmallows to toast was my desire. And my wonderful family pulled through beautifully. It was a gorgeous day, we took my mom and met up with my sis and her family. And it was perfection. We even managed to find a speck of shade to all share and have a fire without burning the place down.
We ate till we were stuffed
The only thing missing was Older Girl. That would have been the icing on the cake.
