This afternoon we decided to visit several small cemeteries within a five mile radius of the area of south Kansas City, MO. where I grew up.
We took a photo of the front gate of each cemetery, so we would know which cemetery we were at on our camera roll.
|Blue Ridge Cemetery, Grandview, MO|
|Martin City -- Klapmeyer Cemetery, Kansas City, MO.|
It was a beautiful day for walking and our dog, Lily, enjoyed it too!
