A Beautiful night on the Missouri River!

The current owner of the home we rent, and a dear friend, invited us out for a stroll on the Missouri river a few weeks ago. It was every bit as beautiful as it looks and so was the company!
The children all adore Tedi!! She comes from a large family and has three amazing children of her own as well as a very sweet husband. We feel so blessed to have found them and even more fortunate that they let us invade their home.

The river has changed so much since the flooding this year but it remains as stunning as it was before. The floods left pristine sand bars and cleaned the entire shore leaving soft, velvety sand to play in. It also left devestation but it's nice to be able to appreciate the good that came of the flooding. The silver lining, if you will.

It was a great evening for sure and one the children won't soon forget.

Very beautiful photos. Reminds me of lots of family trips to the New River in WV.
