Carlyle Lake

This is when we first pulled in. We just barely made it before dark.
Oliver could not wait to get outside!!

We camped where the water was on both sides of us & the wind was CRAZY!

Only seen a couple of boats on the water. The water was to choppy from all the wind.

I think I wore Oliver out - way too much walking for this little one!!
(I will post more pictures later - just wanted to share these for now.)

Camping Time

I can't wait until tomorrow night!! - We will be rolling out Friday night and staying in this for the weekend

We will be sitting out doors during the night keeping ourselves warm by this:

We will be bringing a few of these supplies to also keep us warm:To bad the weather or the water won't be warm enough to do any of this:
I am sure we will have lots of fun anyway - I will be taking my camera to later share some actual pictures. Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

I thought I was going to have trouble finding Purple today - but after looking through my pictures I was surprised to find that I had several Purple captured moments. The above picture is a flower I found on the bluffs in Alton,IL

This is an Afghan Blanket made by my late grandmother. I really appreciate her hard work on those cold winter nights - she continues to keep us warm!!
These were my grandmothers favorite flowers. So this captured moment is in her honour.

This is a basket of flowers I recieved from a very dear friend for my birthday a couple of years ago & these always brighten my day everytime I see them!!

This is my hubs favorite picture. I cheated a little bit on this picture - This effect came through with using my hue & saturation adjustments.
Hope you all enjoyed these Purple captured moments!!

Mississippi in Memphis and St Louis

This is from our trip to Memphis. We see the Mississippi from the Missouri/Illinois views all the time and it is amazing that seeing it from the Memphis view is really not that different.

This is a picture of the Mississippi in front of the St Louis Arch - taken as I was crossing the bridge from Illinois to Missouri. (I was a passenger not driving)
