The rain stopped for awhile and it was a sunny day, so me and my son took a drive to the country for lunch. I try to encourage my kids often to leave the busyness of their own towns and take a drive to the countryside for a day. We had pizza for lunch at one of my favorite places. I love their red and white checkered floors, and on the shelf above were BIG cans of pizza sauce. Then, we drove to the country and gazed at green meadows and lovely horses. The red door picture is a charming little country store that I always stop at. They have the cutest things there, and I find something every time. On the way home, we stopped at the nursery. I wanted to see all the new flowers that are coming in for spring. The Ranunculus were beautiful. I planted these in my garden once, but they never made it. There was a ceramic pot of glass flowers that were stunning, and I wanted to get one, but didn't. The royal blue flower really got to me though. It was such a pleasant day with my son, and I loved talking with him while we drove on the country roads.
