We made an impromptu trip out to visit my Mom on Saturday.  We brought food for an easy dinner, hopped in the Pathfinder and journeyed out to the country.  We made it in time to go evening church service.  We had to get there early so that my Mom could bring flowers for the altar.  She picks them fresh out of her garden each week, makes a beautiful arrangement and then puts them in two matching vases.  This week she had beautiful mix of lilies and a few lazy Susan’s, along with some greenery.  I didn’t take a photo, but here are a couple of images from her garden to give you a sense of her green thumb.

After church and dinner, Sophia and I ventured out to the field to see the beginnings of a beautiful sunset.

Sophia grumbled the whole way, complaining about the bugs buzzing around her head and the grass poking through her shoes.  She ended up admitting it was worth the hike when she saw the view from atop the hill.

We decided to have a little fun.

And then the sun went down.

  1. Mary, I so enjoyed the pictures you took at your Mom’s this weekend. What great pictures of the sunset and Sophia posing in different ways as you took the pictures. You should send this in to some contest because I am sure you would win!!
