It’s hard to believe that just three days before this historic blizzard in Missouri, the temperature reached 65 degrees. Of course I took advantage of this awesome day and spent most of the day outside tanning in a string bikini. Okay, I lie. But, we did spend most of the day outside anyway.
Since I’ve been back to Missouri for the past two months, it’s been exciting sharing parts of my childhood with Aliana (showing her where I went to school, old books, toys, movies). So on this gone-too-soon sunny day, Andrew and I decided to bring both girls out to the lake by my parents house.
First we ventured over to the North Shelter.
It’s a pretty special place. When my sister and I were younger, many of our weekend afternoons were filled with climbing these cliffs. Andrew and I used to come here and
suck face look at the stars. Most importantly, my sister was married here.
To get to the North Shelter, you travel over our tiny towns landmark… the one-mile bridge. It measures out to be one mile in length. Giving it the name of “the one-mile bridge”. Go figure.
idiots people have jumped from the top of this bridge into the water below. I am not one of those people, nor do I desire to be.
We took the girls to another lake access point so that Aliana could get closer to the water.
But not too close, ya know what I’m sayin?
I love to travel and see new places but I’ll always remember where I came from and its natural beauty.
