Come for a drive

I zipped out today to run a couple of quick errands for my Mom. what a drive! So pretty that I felt compelled to stop along the way for pictures so I could share the beauty with you.
these overhanging trees are on nearly every neighborhood road ... they remind me of "Father of The Bride" ... LOVE that show! And LOVE these neighborhoods!

  17. What a pretty drive! I love the Father of the Bride movies (all of them), they give you such a warm homey feel. Lovely trees, what a beautiful creation that God gave for us to enjoy.
    I hope your visit with your parents is very special and full of cherished memories for all of you.
