I'll finish my Summer Fun posts with our visit to Matt's family farm. It was actually one of the most
"fun" things we did all summer (although we could have done without the 100 + degree
We started off with the horses. They actually just sat on them because it was just too hot for the
horses to go for a ride. They all took turns sitting on Makenzie and Brody's horse, "Ginger".
I believe it was Rahel's first time being by a horse and she did awesome.
Double bareback for the cousins.
Then we got into the farm vehicles (not sure exactly what they are called)
and drove around the farm.
They let them drive young on a farm. ;-)
we drove around the farm
visited the cows
my girls driving farm vehicles
then Matt took all the kids for a ride on the big tractor
I think the girls had a really good adventure.
After leaving the farm we got ice-cream and headed for the park.
After all, it was only 104 degrees.
we did swinging under the shade trees
4 sweet sisters
and cheer practicing
besides all the activities we were able to do on this trip,
we also crammed in a lot of tree house and back porch picnics.
We had such a great time visiting Kelly, Matt and the kids.
Thank you for having us all at your house and especially thank you
Matt for having to stay at the farm every night while we were there
so there would be enough room.
Thank you Gail, Jessica, and girls for coming on this adventure with me.
Thank you Carrie for using your vacation time to come and help.
Love you girls.
I'm looking forward to doing a trip in the future with the boy cousins.
(in a few years from now. ha)
