City of Windmills

Also, while the girls were away at my parents house, we went to Dodge City to visit some good friends of ours that we went to college with. On the way home, we did a little bit of sight seeing. We stopped at the Wind Farm in Spearville. It is so interesting to read about this wind farm and the energy it produces.

Fun Fact: Each structure weighs 120 tons, but a breeze of just 8 mph is needed to turn the blades!

Dyck Arboretum

For a week in July, the girls went to my parents house. Yes, for A WHOLE WEEK!!! Richard's birthday fell in the middle of that week, so we went on a picnic date. We went to Hesston to Dyck Arboretum. It is so beautiful there! We ate fried chicken and strawberries. It was a wonderful evening for a picnic.

And THIS is what Richard got for his birthday!
