"Great are the works of the LORD,
studied by all who delight in them.
Full of splendor and majesty is His work,
and His righteousness endures forever."
Last week while visiting my folks, I took the kids to the Morton Arboretum. We heart it there....even on sticky, 93degree days. The kids area is extensively cool....a hedge maze, frog pond, treehousey rope bridges, gardens, unusual plants to discover. But, I have to say, the best part was dipping my feet into a cool stream, ahhhh. It really was crazy hot.
favorite little candy shop on the way home, filling our white paper bags with as much old-timey candy as a dollar could buy. "Spend your $1 wisely!"
