52 Weeks of Blessings- week 27--Sunday Drives

The past 2 weeks Troy and I have taken a "Sunday drive".  Alone, we've left the kiddos with Grandma and Grandpa and gone for a drive.  It has really been a nice time to spend a few hours together.  We live right next to a state park, it has been fun exploring it, watching the wildlife and enjoying the beauties that surround us.  We take the 4-wheelers on our "Sunday drives" as they are cheaper to tootle around on than our gas guzzlers.  So this week's blessing is Sunday drives and a few hours with my husband.  Since I keep forgetting to bring the camera, I will share a few photos from other trips into the park.

I'm not sure the photos convey the colors and uniqueness of our badlands.
