February Fun

I know it's been awhile since I've posted anything to our blog, but we've been busy! Here is a little of what we did this month....

We vacationed at Big Cedar, which is a resort owned by Bass Pro Shops down in Ridgewood, Missouri (just below Branson, on the Arkansas/Missouri border). We rented a boat and went fishing on Table Rock Lake!














James loved driving the boat, but he let me drive it some, too.














We ate at the White River Fish House, which is also owned by Bass Pro Shops

We also went to see the orchid show at the botanic garden. This is a picture of the climatron...



















My favorite orchid at the show...














Then we went to the St. Louis Auto Show! This is the SUV that I want to buy...














This is the truck that James wants...














I've also started some plants and seeds in the house to get ready for spring. This is a lovely amaryllis that I grew!

Looks like y'all have been having fun! And that amaryllis is beautiful! You definitely got the green thumb gene. I'm not so sure yet that I have got that. I have killed a few plants. haha

There's no secret about growing plants - it's like cooking. You've just got to be willing to totally bomb it a whole bunch of times, and eventually you'll figure out what you like. I've killed WAY more than my share of plants.
