first day of summer....

happy birthday son! we're in joplin, missouri today and the temperatures were in the high 90s...what will the desert hold for us? the landscape has become more green and there are valleys around every bend. we've also started seeing insects we're unfamiliar with. new lands....sometimes the forests carpeting the valleys seem to go on forever. photos below:
1. something yellow caught our eye at our campsite
2. st. louis arch! thank you Saarinen
3. birthday presents at daybreak
4. lots of naps
5. company on the road
6. ikea fabric on the couch - much nicer to sit on something our own - happens to match the curtains too!
7. joy







thanks for stopping by....the days are long with driving time, pool time, cooking, cleaning....not much different than home but much simpler. i like it this way. one pot. one pan. one mission for the day....to be together. happy summer to you! what did you do today to celebrate summer? off to oklahoma tomorrow. k
