A Sunday Drive in Oxfordshire

Sunday evening we drove over to our new favorite cinema to see The Simpsons Movie, which has gotten astonishingly good reviews. But the parking lot was absolutely packed and we knew the theater would be too, so we turned around and went home.

But it was such a beautiful evening, and you know from all my whining that that has been a rarity these days, so we took our time getting home. David took us for a wonderfully scenic drive around our local area, and we discovered a new hill covered in gorgeous wheat fields. We pulled over and took in the views and fresh air for a bit and it was just fantastic. Better even than a movie, and I like movies.

And we visited two local churches on the way home as well, taking advantage of the rare sunshine to take a couple snaps with our little camera.
