A Sunday Drive…

When I was a little girl my mom, dad, and I would always take Sunday drives. We would go all over the state and sometime to other states if time permitted. Sometimes our Sunday drives would happen on Saturdays if we wanted to drive too far, as usually Sunday we went to church. These are some of my favorite memories from my childhood.

When I met my husband he also had the same experience as a child so we decided to incorporate these “Sunday drives” into our relationship. We felt it was important to have this time and to keep them as part of our family traditions.  We really enjoy them and find it is really a time to connect, talk, and relax.

So today we took one of our drives after he got home from work. We drove into Maryland and I found a lot of photo opportunities. I thought I would share some.

First we went by this little church, I thought the stained glass windows and steeple were very neat.

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On one of the back roads we had to put on our brakes rather quickly as a chicken almost ran out in front of us…

 

 

 

 

 

Then we found this little park we could walk the dogs along a stream.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next we found some neat farms, barns, and fence lines.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some cows were wondering what I doing... I think they thought I was a crazy lady taking pictures of their farm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On the way home I saw some what looked like wooden crosses along side an old barn. I thought they were neat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was a nice day, despite the migraine I had, and I enjoyed the ride.

Do you have any family traditions you have carried over into your family now? Were you able to do any on those today?

Light, flowers, and such

Yesterday I found a new color tulip in our yard. I don’t remember it in the past and I had not seen it yet this year. This yellow tulip was growing on the side of the house that gets the least sun in the day, but I tried to wait untill it had some sun before I took this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I then noticed the pink tulip I have in the front flower bed was starting to open.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I thought it was just neat the way flowers grow and bloom. And that pink tulip was just beautiful with the white on the bottom, pink on top, and the slightly open flower. The cherry tree also had some more blooms and the light made the flowers pretty shinning though it (I don’t think I did it justice).

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also enjoyed the way the light was hitting our wood pile.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The chickens are out and about today in the yard and the dogs are in the chair with me as I write this as I think they need some love this morning. It’s cloudy and chilly this morning. I hope it warms up and the sun comes out as the yard needs to be mowed and I want to plant some onion bulbs. I am off to do Sunday chores inside until my husband gets home from work. Have a blessed sunday 🙂
