I was one of the lucky kids that grew up with brothers, sisters, mom, dad, cousins, grandma, grandpa, aunts and uncles who all lived within one mile of each other. We had many an afternoon running through the sprinklers, or just sitting on grandma’s lap watching cartoons. However, one favorite memory that came to mind was our “Family Picnic” on Easter Sunday in the desert. Yes, that’s right; we hid “real hard boiled eggs” not plastic eggs in cactus, shrubs, snake holes, rabbit holes and more! (We never got sick from spoiled eggs that I can remember!) Afterwards we ate our wonderful picnic food that mom and all the aunts had prepared that consisted of home fried chicken, yummy potato salad, and juicy ice-cold watermelon. We played “king of the hill” and hide-in-go-seek for hours among the cactus in the hot desert sun then cooling down with a water balloon fight and drinking cold soda. Now, that is what I call a very pleasant, enjoyable and satisfying excursion called a picnic!
