(These photos are from a couple of weeks ago, but I'm just getting around the putting them up~ Sitting down and typing can be a challenge when you have a watermelon-sized belly!) :)
We've been living near the Missouri River for almost three years, and finally made a trip especially to see it. There is a park with river access not far away, and we were happy to discover a nice sandy bank, and very warm water! So different from the Snake River we left behind us.
Some of us were not so sure the water was a safe place to be, especially when a passing barge made some impressive waves!
And we discovered a few sand burs, which is something we'd forgotten about, with the clay soil we've gotten used to!
Back at home, the Monarch butterflies whom we raised from eggs emerged from their beautiful chrysalides.We hope they will make it to Mexico and raise the next generation in the spring.
Thank you for your friendship and kind comments. We are so grateful for all of you who stop by here, and for the kinship we feel with you!
