It was a cool, sunny evening on Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. The snowball bush was in full bloom. My grandma would tell me, when the moon is full, and the snowball bushes are blooming, the weather will be cool. She was right.
With the big white blanket placed down first, they each took their place in the wagon. Now, before you mothers and grandmothers out there panic when you see this picture, please know that caring parents were walking right behind the wagon, with a ready hand to help, if needed. The smiles on each little face, is a true indication of the moment.
I enjoyed watching the older ones, so lovingly and willingly, wanting to help the younger cousins, especially when the slide looked so high.
The evening came to a close with bowls of the favored, rainbow sherbet.
A picnic table full of cousins enjoying another one of the rare visits together.
And, for the moment, sharing and love were in the air:)
I so appreciate the comments you shared yesterday and today.
It is good to be back, and to have the privilege of sharing the simple, yet special moments of this maw maw's life.
