While in Wichita...

 
                                                           How true is this!!!!
 
A day at Sedgwich County Zoo was a fun filled day. These big guys and one 'baby' are my oldest grand's favorite. She even got to feed them so one more thing to scratch off  her 'bucket list'. *smile*



 
 As for me...its was all about the birds! So close you could touch them...if I dared. Which I DID NOT! heheee

 
This one walked up to stand next to me...so much love. 
 
                                                             What a pose!


 
                                             I so love these boys...and the gorilla.

Another bike ride...this time 35.3 miles!

 
 You can see how new the bike/walking path is. Truly blessed to have this in our area.
           
 
 I am told this is the longest bike tunnel in Arkansas. I took a pic of the two riders ahead of me.

 
The 3 of us! This is the mile maker #0. The beginning of the Razorback Greenway!
 
 
Nothing like fresh picked blackberries from the 'mini forest' made into a 'Blackberry Sauce' to go over vanilla ice cream.

A wonderful day to bycyle 37.32 miles

 
 We started out at about 7:20 last Sunday morning...and rode into a bit of rain. Then look what we saw. It was a complete half rainbow.

 
  This is us at one of many brake times! Here we are at the Shiloh museums.


              It wasn't open yet, but I know it would be a fun place to return too!



 
 We are the  Rrazorback-regional-greenway. A bike/walking path that connects many towns together....
 
       Trying to find out and scope out where we are.


 
 This is Lake Fayetteville. A 5 mile bike path around, but we went straight ahead into town where we had a much need lunch break. My goal that day was to bike over 16 miles. That was how far I peddled of that trail. Boy never would I have thought we could bike as far as we did and back. A great day to say the least. *smile*

We have an awesome...


...walking group! We had a total of 20 this day! Always a great time to catch up with one another. 

 
Meet Mr. Black Rat snake. He was on my driveway when I can home from walking. We keep him around and we have no problems with small rodents. I guided him into the shrubs. No worries. He's harmless.

 
 A friend has her grandsons for the summer so we went kayaking. 3 and half miles and I think we wore them out.  *smile*

June 30, 2015 Ponca Arkansas to Kyle's Landing Ar.


A day of kayaking on the Buffalo River. This time we had 13 kayakers! A great paddle with 12 miles of awesome scenery. A few tumbles, a few mishaps but it was a great day none the less. Here, if you care to see what I saw take a look at the Pictures.

 
Please, let me know if this link doesn't work for you.
 
 
All done. Now it will go to it's new home.
 
 
 
This is 2 yards of edging that will be use for a heirloom Christian gown.

A day of fun last Wednesday....

 
 This is the second time for me to pick blackberries this year. So now I have 16 quarts in the freezer to last me the year. Here my friend found a bird next in the bush.

We bike ride on the side of this and have wondered about it. So we decided to 'find' it and wow were we happy we stopped by. St. Anthony's On the Creek. We learned its a wedding chapel and or event center.




 
 
The ground keeper happens to be family member and owner. You can tell he loves what he does and takes a lot of pride in the outdoor gardens. We are learning to stop and smell the rose when we can. Life is too short to say 'ah, next time'. The time to do things my friends, is now. *smile*
