As the boys said, they had a lovely time at the Kansas Ocean the other evening. Zim thought the sights and sounds in this video might soothe you!
He said those sounds are some of his froggy friends talking to him! (And a car going by; ignore that part!)
Here are both of my brothers walking around by the ocean:
All of that "clickety clickety click" stuff is frogs (and bugs). We think. Not that big bullfrog - his voice is REALLY loud and everyfrog else gets quiet when he talks! You can also hear some birdies singing. Speaking of birdies... here are a couple of the shore birds the boys saw:
Oh.... I know what you're thinking. They look remarkably like Mourning Doves... but ... umm ... this is the Kansas Ocean. We'll take any shore birds we can get. Zim said he wasn't sure where his goose friends were!
See the limestone chunks along the shore line? This part of Kansas is known for limestone! We have it on the outside of Ao4 Headquarters and our retaining walls are made from big pieces of it! Here is a chunk out in its natural environment:
Isn't it pretty? Those are all the serene scenery type pix the boys helped Mom take. They'll wrap up that adventure tomorrow with some iPhone photos. I wonder if there's anything else serene around here?
Me. Ammy. Looking for serene stuff.
Mom got a big, pretty basket of flowers from her mom - and they made her feel really happy! Here are her two favorite photos of them:
White, frothy stuff in front of red carnations and roses

I hope you find it as beautiful, soothing and peaceful as we did!
Happy Serene Scenery Sunday!
