Not having a job and not having a computer set up for the better part of last year made it to where I did not get a chance to post a lot of the fun things we did over the summer of 2014.
During our trip to Missouri we were able to go to see the Butterfly Gardens near our Grandparents house. Coming from the desert to such a beautiful place was a bit overwhelming for my green loving soul. I was in awe of all the beautiful trees and just wanted to take a picture of everything. I miss green so much. It speaks to me and calls me by name. I joke that anywhere with green is my mother ship and it’s always calling me home.
I can’t believe this was only a year ago and that my kids have grown up so much since then. They seem so big to me now and so little then. I am constantly in awe at how fast they grow and how fast time flies by.
We came upon a wet play area that we did not know about, so of course the kids had to run around in it and get wet. It was such a blast and I really enjoyed watching them, part of me wanted to jump in and get a break from the heat, but I hate walking around in wet clothes so I passed.
I mean seriously….. so very, very beautiful. I miss that place. It was just gorgeous.
There was also this fun little area where the kids got to do games that pioneer kids would do and we got to eat all natural, made at the park, off their own plants, popsicles. Those things were so very yummy!! It really was an amazing trip.
Being there made me fall in love with Missouri… add that to a place I could totally see myself living!!!
