Another Trip Out West
Above you see a picture of me doing what I've been doing a lot of lately~ driving!
The children and I (Mr. Graham, alas, could not get off work) traveled to see two nieces on their wedding days, one in Idaho, and one in Utah.
We stayed at my mother's house, which always welcomes us with many beautiful flowers and barking dogs.
We were able to visit with cherished friends. . .
. . . and loving family members whose smiling faces make our lives a better place!
I was able to harvest a bit of Motherwort from the special patch that only we know exists. It's all the more special to me because we buried Rebecca's placenta there five years ago.
Hyrum discovered that he has boy cousins who, although they're much older, still love to play with pirates. . .
. . . and that my first niece to get married has a fun bearded dragon that looks dashing in a bow tie!
All too soon it was time to return home. We stayed in North Platte, Nebraska and took time to see Fort Cody, featuring a wonderful miniature moving Wild West Show that Hyrum loved.
We were happy to be able to get back and see our beloved pets, who were not too happy being locked up all day whilst we were away! Mr. Graham did a great job taking care of all of them, but we're pretty sure that he was happy to have us back to do it for him again. :)
Now to recover from our trip, and to just relax and enjoy the rest of summer's bounties.
