Some places I would like to be right now

How about Chicago? I love going and walking down Michigan Ave and shopping like crazy. By the time you get back to your hotel, you are so exhausted that your asleep before your head even hits the pillow. But when you wake up the next morning, your ready to do it all over again!

Or maybe just head up to the farm and sit by one of your favorite ponds and read a little. If your quiet enough, you will have deer and turkey come across the field to look at.


Of course you always have a fishing boat in Miami that will take you into the ocean and you can sit back and enjoy the scenery.


Or maybe hang out on Hollywood beach and listen closely to the waves and drown out all of life's problems.


Deep in the Everglades is such a sight to see. But you want to be high up like we were because gators are very thick through here.


Sitting on the sand and watching your two boys just get lost in the innocents of being a child...


Going to Grand Canyon and being able to witness the miracle of natural beauty. We could just sit up there for hours and not say a word and it was such an awesome feeling.


Of course something a little closer (still 3 1/2 hours away). It is really nice to go down to the Arch and sit by the river at sunset and watch how pretty it can be.
These are just some of the places I have been fortunate enough to go and visit. I had some really cool pictures of New Orleans as well but couldn't find them to post on here. That's okay, they will turn up and I will post them one day.

When I have been stuck in my house for as long as we have, it is so easy to daydream about where I have been and where I wish we could be. Maybe one day soon we get to get out and enjoy life again. We have a doctors appointment tomorrow so please pray that he will have seen enough progress that he thinks it will be okay for us to get out. Coltan and Cody will start doing a lot of traveling next month and I'm ready for it. Let's just pray that the doctors think Carson is ready as well!

Happy Wednesday to all!

I would *heart* the beach right now, near the Caribbean perhaps. I guess anywhere warm would suit. Best of luck tomorrow, you all will be in our prays...

Kaci said...

Good luck tomorrow. I'll say an extra prayer that y'all get good news.

Thanks for the award - I'll get around to posting it on my blog soon :)

What a nice post! I have been to none of those places except St. Louis. Wish I could go too. I'll just sit here and daydream about going to them all now, thanks to you. :)

All those places look great. I do have to say, the only way I will even see the Grand Canyon is on a post card. Been there done that, No Thank YOU!!!.. LOL.. Scared me to death..

Happy Hump Day! I love to travel and you just re-inspired me to get out there and visit those cities!

I was born on the Missouri side of Kansas City and moved to Leawood, Kansas when I was in middle school for better school districts. Then my mom moved to Overland Park when I was in college. So that is where we stay when we are in town. Both Ryan & I have family all over KC though. What sub do you live in? How long have you lived there? Are you originally from KC?
I would love it if you added me to your blogroll. Actually, if you don't mind... Would you add yourself to my friends list on my right side bar? Nobody has taken the plunge and I'm not sure if they know what it is. I have relatively "new to blogging" readers. Ha!
