My Return from the Wild Country...

... a.k.a. 'Kentucky'. That's right, I just got back at 5 o'clock this morning after spending a lovely four days with my family in beautiful, rugged Kentucky... where they've received a good deal more rain than we have here. Coming home, it was amazing to see the difference between the rich green of Kentucky and the parched brown of Missouri. Please, all of you, keep praying for rain. Drought comes with the territory of Missouri summers, but I have never seen it as bad as this before. In fact, this evening we could look out our back windows and see the smoke from wildfires miles to the west of us, and that has never happened before. Maybe in places like Colorado that's normal, but not in Missouri. We don't just have wildfires around here like that, and it's actually pretty scary to realize that we've reached that point. Your prayers are appreciated, and desperately needed.
But back to happier things: namely, my trip! It's been several years since my family has taken a real vacation, so this week we ventured out to Kentucky for my great-grandma's 95th birthday party. But we also spent two days at the Answers in Genesis Creation Museum! We've been wanting to go there  for years, and if you haven't been to it yet, let me assure you it's well worth the trip! As I said, we spent two days there, and we could have easily spent much longer.
It was a typical Pursselley endeavor: riddled with mishaps and random chaos. Details to follow. But we had a fantastic time. We took literally hundreds of pictures, and I'll be posting some of them here at the Lair tomorrow or Tuesday, so be watching!
Until then, friends!
