We were blessed to spend some time at my parents' house twice in September. Here are some more pictures from late in the month.
We had a picnic. These apples were a nice festive touch!
Tirzah, Bethany and Peter -- focused on the ice cream. You can tell by Peter's position how much sugar he needed, ha.
Happy girl post-ice cream.
Liberty in a dress first worn by Bethany.
My man on his birthday weekend. :)
Tirzah and Zion, heading to see the neighbors' sheep.
Zion explored the pond by herself while the rest of us were closer to the creek. I kept an eye on her from a distance and took these. Love the zoom function. ;)
Grandpa (sporting a shirt made for a church function of a group he works with in Lone Jack) examining nature finds.
Discovering wild turkey feathers!
And a snail! (And really dirty fingernails!) Don't know what kind. I had trouble finding info and gave up for the time being. If you know, please tell!
These last couple pictures blurred in the waning light. I thought the effect was kinda cool on this photo in the woods, though.
I started out identifying this as some kind of crab spider on some kind of wildflower, but I decided to look into it further. I'm glad I did. I'm sort of getting into identifying things. The Internet makes it soooo much easier! So now we know this is probably one of a few types of flower spiders (which are crab spiders) -- too blurry to narrow it down -- on a Tickseed Sunflower. I really like the site where I was able to identify the Tickseed Sunflower. It has pictures of Missouri Wildflowers organized by color. I have a feeling I'm going to be using that site more in the near future.
