Sunday Scenes

Our Sunday drive yesterday took us north to the area where my Mom grew up. This is the church where my parents were married and as a little girl I can remember going here with my grandparents. It was a nostalgic kind of Sunday drive.

When you walked through the tall grass and clover, tiny little orange butterflies would rise up in a cloud! They were so tiny and quick that even when Bob 'stirred' the grass, I couldn't really get them in a picture.

My favourite picture - but it was really hard to capture them with their wings open! As soon as they land, their wings fold up as they sip nectar from the flowers. I was finally successful!

Something about rocks and water just call a guy to throw skipping stones!

My favourite man!


  1. Awesome photos!!! Looks like another great Sunday drive!
    When we went hiking a couple weeks ago there were SO many butterflies too! Crazy!

  2. I love all your pictures, especially the old church. It's so fun to go visit places from the past that have such special meanings.

    The new babies in the previous post are absolutely precious!

  3. The weather looks great out there. I love the photo of Dad just relaxing and enjoying a Sunday afternoon. Looking forward to sharing a drive or two with you soon.

  4. How special that you could drive to the place where your parents were married. It's a beautiful church.
    You're right that's something about water, rocks, and guys. Skipping stones is something they like to do, no matter the age!

  5. Looks like you both had a pleasant, peaceful nostalgic Summer Drive. Those are the best and definately a favorite pastime of mine, although my girls don't like them nearly as much.

    Great photos too!!!

  6. Beautiful pics!!

  7. This is a lovely way to spend a Sunday! Your pictures are gorgeous and really capture the enjoyment of the day.
