Happy Belated Father's Day!

I didn't have time to post since I was spending the day with my Father. We took him out to eat at a Irish pub/restaurant. :)

Happy Father's Day

A Dad is a person
who is loving and kind,
And often he knows
what you have on your mind.
He's someone who listens,
suggests, and defends.
A dad can be one
of your very best friends!
He's proud of your triumphs,
but when things go wrong,
A dad can be patient
and helpful and strong
In all that you do,
a dad's love plays a part.
There's always a place for him
deep in your heart.
And each year that passes,
you're even more glad,
More grateful and proud
just to call him your dad!
Thank you, Dad...
for listening and caring,
for giving and sharing,
but, especially, for just being you!
Happy Father's Day

The Sky Was Green This Morning.

Around 5:20am this morning, the sky turned green. It was lightning every few seconds it seemed. I had the tv on for a few minutes and they had no tornado warnings, just severe thunderstorm warnings for the few counties surrounding our county, but no warning for us. So I went back in bed & then, boom! The wind picked up, the power went out & the wind sounded like a train. I knew it was a tornado or a funnel. I prayed. I said, Dear God, please keep us safe. And He answered. :)
I got up, looked out the kitchen window facing the field and couldn't see a thing. It was hailing and really windy. I am very surprised the sirens did not go off.
I fell asleep around 6am and then woke up around 8:30am. I put my shoes on, grabbed my camera & walked out the door. I was surprised at what I had seen. A neighbor told me her daughter went to work in Bloomington & saw a tornado. We said it was definitely a tornado that caused this because of how it sounded.

Just a few of the shots I got.
I'm glad no one was hurt.

Summer Fun!!!

Well within the next month we are going to Six Flags, St. Louis Zoo, Chicago, & The Arch!! :D
I can't wait!! I have been to downtown Chicago about 8 years ago, but I do not remember seeing the Sears Tower though. I guess I didn't pay much attention to it then. I will be taking plenty of pictures for sure!!! I love visiting the big cities!
