Fun with Friends

matchy-matchy

Ellen and I met to walk and take the kids around the village and found that our children matched. Perfect photo op!

I thought it was cute how long Alex stayed standing on the fence. Plenty of time for me to get a good picture. It was when I started to walk away that I truly noticed his face. He was scared to get down because of the chickens. Oops, poor kid!

plowing the field

Eli didn't have time to chat. He was off to plow the fields. I didn't have the heart to tell him that he was doing it backwards.

The highlight of this particular visit to the village was the dirt. Yes, it is the world's greatest history attraction with cows, sheeps, cars, trains, etc., etc, and all 4 of the kids enjoyed throwing dirt. Oh well it gave us plenty of time to chat. Any Mom knows an un-interruped conversation is priceless whether baths will be needed afterward or not! :)

Glad to hear the boys are doing better and you all are able to get out and about! I absolutely LOVE fall and miss it terribly out here...but I definitely don't miss winter, so I guess I'll take the heat verses the snow! :)
