An Evening Drive.....
Last evening, we were out in the back yard playing baseball when one of the kids spotted a hot air balloon in the distance. So we all piled into the van and chased it down.
We saw some other interesting sights on our drive through the countryside as well, including:
A mural on the side of a barn
a statue of a soldier on the same farm
beautiful views of the river
and even a blue heron!
Sometimes it's just kind of fun to drive around exploring and discovering things close to home that you've never seen before. The kids really enjoyed it too, even though we abruptly ended our baseball game. (That's OK, because I wasn't able to catch the ball at all last night. Maybe I should blame it on the brand new baseball glove that wasn't broken in yet.) Hope you all have a great weekend!
