Nature center and parade

Today was a busy day. My daughter went wedding dress shopping with her aunt and cousin in Springfield. We got to keep my grandson and take him to the Holt Summit Christmas Parade. Very chilly day; sunny, windy and 38 degrees. But first we went to Runge nature center. We always enjoy that and I prefer it over the park because its also educational. My grandson learned to shoot a rubber band gun. make deer tracks with clay and see a lot of turkeys at the feeders. Next we found a place to park on the parade route and waited. As soon as the kids heard the first police sirens, they jumped up! A very cold but very fun day!

Jefferson City Living Windows

Headlines read; Downtown Jefferson City windows come alive for one of the community's most treasured and favorite events!  The first weekend on December, I always look forward to! What a beautiful night and the temperatures were in the 50's. My husband and I got there early to beat the crowds but in no time, High Street, in Jefferson City was bustling with people! Here is a look into my town.

Oklahoma 2017

I was put up for adoption when I was born. Long story short, I found my biological parents in 2007, who in turn, were both adopted as well. Jump forward to last year my birth father did a DNA test through Ancestry and we find his biological family. So this weekend, I traveled to Orlando, Oklahoma to meet my biological family.
I had a wonderful time and so much in common even though I had not met them before! There is a lot to be said about genetics! So here are some photos of this weekend with my family!
