Sunday in the park

When I was a kid growing up in western Kentucky, Columbus-Belmont Park was the place to go on a field trip.

Still is.

We also hiked the trails, played miniature golf and ate….a lot. Because you always had a picnic when you went to Columbus Park.

Good times.

Today over 60 members of my family are gathered at Columbus-Belmont Park for a reunion, celebrating the 100th Wedding Anniversary of Edith and Omar Hayden, my maternal grandparents.

I had to cancel because my dog got sick.  (He’s fine now…of course.)

So if you are in the neighborhood, stop by and say howdy.  They’re a lot of fun.  And grab some lunch.  They’ll have extra —

Mine.
