There was a beautiful sunset that night. Of course my brother took this. He's so much better with my camera than I am!
We stayed the night and went home the next day, back to the house in Shelley where I grew up. We had more fireworks - Alex loved them.
I wanted to show the kids the (semi) wild places where I used to play as a little girl and tell them stories about the canal where we weren't allowed to play (but we did anyway!), and about the time I hid in the fields to avoid a doctor visit.
Even though I love where we live in California, it's all very developed where we are and it's just not the same.
I'm so glad when we can escape for a while.
