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?

Save the Trees… (and my bird feeders)

Today started out cold…

Then it rained…

Then it got really nice…

After it got nice outside my husband and I finally finished the new laying house for the girls it is now installed and safe (I forgot to take pictures, I will try to later). I then took some time taking pictures around the property. Here is what I found…

In the back yard our cherry tree was flowering…

The front yard was full of other pretty trees…

I think this is our pear tree
 
I forgot what this bush/tree is called, I just love the yellow flowers. Does anyone know what it is called?

I then found more tulips and daffodils were blooming…

The funny part of the day is the squirrel who is my husbands arch nemesis came out to tease my husband once again…

My husband keeps chasing him off and he comes back. I try to tell my husband it is useless to chase him, but the scene happens again and again… quite to my amusement 🙂

What are your favorite trees in your yard?
