Annual Golfing and Antiquing Trip

My husband and I went on our Annual Golfing/Antiquing trip to Arcadia Valley Missouri area.  The antiquing and golfing both were so-so, but we had a great time spending time together doing some of our favorite things.  Also, our daughter and granddaugthers dropped by to see us and we enjoyed Elephant Rocks State Park and Johnson Shut-Ins State Park.  We had a great day hiking and swimming.

It was very hot, like it has been all summer, but we made do by a/c in the camper and antique stores and golfing early or late in the day.  It rained three of the four days we were camping, but we sure didn't get much at our home.  Lack of rain sure has been hard on our yard and plants.

I ended up only buying one item while antiquing -- an apothecary jar.  It is large and I have it on my entryway table but haven't figured out what to put in it yet.  I'll have picture of it in a future blog along with a room design we did in our home.

I hope you post some pictures of Elephant rocks! Sounds interesting. Do you golf? And how did you pick out just one thing at those neat antique stores!?

Your grands are precious and I know you love spending time with them!!!
