Mothers Day weather perfect for Second Sunday in Washington Park
The weather couldnt cooperate any more than it did during the Second Sunday in Washington Park concert.
Not too hot. Not too cold. Plenty of sun and warm enough for the children to play in the steady stream of water flowing on the parks edges.
It was also a good day for mothers to take in the oldies but goodies delivered by local cover band the Grapevine.
I was served breakfast. Pancakes, bacon, eggs, said Amy Tarpley while sitting in a crowded Washington Park. The chef of her special Mothers Day meal was her husband, Troy. After making the breakfast, he took their daughter, Brenna, out. To the park I think, Amy said. I dont know where they went, but they were gone for four hours.
I got to eat lunch without sharing, she said. And then I did some laundry.
Troys mother, Karen Oakley, enjoyed her evening at the Second Sunday concert with her son, granddaughter and daughter-in-law.
Being a grandparent is wonderful, she said. When your children are young, youre so busy making sure all of their needs are taken care of. With your grandchildren, you just enjoy them and realize how quick they grow up.
As she enjoyed the concert, Oakley received a phone call from one of her three sons, the only one she hadnt heard from Sunday. Now my day is complete, she said.
