The last part of June and first week of July, we spent in Oklahoma visiting my parents who are sweet potato farmers there. We had never been there in the summer, so thought it would be nice to do so. My Mama cooked us lots of yummy food and yummy desserts. We had our share of fresh veggies, including just-getting-ready sweet corn! We played in the lake close to where they live, which was really nice! We got to visit their church, and had a good time visiting with Christian brothers and sisters from their church. We walked way to the back of their farm, and I got my first big tractor ride! I also got to go to the Farmers' market with my Mama to sell veggies, did some Goodwill shopping, and ate at a cute cafe with her. On our way home, it was the Fourth of July, so we stopped and bought fireworks, and blew them off on a country road in Missouri!
