Today . . . July 31, 2015
Something from my Playlist . . . I have to say that I have really been enjoying some, summer breezes! Last week we were camping and it was breezy! It was also very beautiful, and reminded me of the song, Summer Breeze, by Seals and Crofts. This is an oldie but a goody!
Mother Nature . . . Today, my thermometer said it was 93 degrees here in Idaho - I can live with that. By the end of August, summer will slip quietly away, and give way to Autumn, so I am enjoying these warm temps while I have a chance.
On My Mind . . . Well, last week, my daughter finally got the pins out of her foot. The doctor didn't think it had healed enough, so he told her . . . much to her dismay . . . that it needed another three weeks of, no weight. She was pretty disappointed. He gave her a smaller boot, told her to wear it diligently, and sent her on her way. I felt so sorry for her, I know how badly she wants her life back! One week has already gone by, so only two weeks to go! Her motto is . . . I can do hard things!
In a Nutshell . . . It's been a crazy summer for us - lots of camping, and spending time with family. We have been able to see some really beautiful country and have fun with kids! My husband and I went up before everyone else, so we went 4-wheeling! It was just gorgeous!
Here we are on top of a mountain, and it was so pretty! My husband took advantage of the cell service and sent a few pictures to the kids.
It was a cloudy and somewhat stormy week, but that made the photos that much more interesting to me, I love clouds!
It was a rocky trail!
Ahhhhhh . . . we felt like we were on top of the world!
Yup, we got rained on!
I've had a few people ask me if I sleep in a tent when I go camping. . . the answer is, "no". This is my home when we are camping. It's very comfortable, and I feel very blessed.
Very clear, cold and beautiful nights . . . most of the time . . . ;0)
These are, Black Twinberries. I love the little flowery tops! Some say they are edible, others say they are not, I'm not brave enough to try.
Still a few wild flowers to enjoy.
Some Sweetness . . . We really wanted Averi to try riding on the 4-wheeler. She liked to listen to it, but was really scared to try riding. Her mom and dad want her to try new things, so they convinced her to try riding. She was so scared, but she plugged her ears and gave it a try.
Such a brave girl!
This girl LOVES 4-wheeling! Grandpa let her drive, at least she thought she was driving! She was on cloud nine!!
No more tears - only smiles. These pictures don't show her with a helmet, but she did wear a helmet for the rest of her 4-wheeling adventures!
Just Sayin' . . .
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart.
