My cute girls

I love how much they love each other. Most of the time. Here they're sitting on their box playhouse. They love to climb up it all the time, and tap dance on the roof. That makes me crazy, but so does a lot of things they do! At least they're friends!

Today I got rid of my Doc Martins. I wore them almost every day in high school after I got them for my 16th birthday. Ah, memories. Well, when I wore them, I put in rainbow shoelaces, but those broke off so long ago. I donated them to Goodwill, but I had to take a picture for memory's sake. I briefly considered taking a picture of me wearing them, but we were already late to our appointment at the doctor's office, so I opted to just take a picture and donate them. I'm almost sad I got rid of them, but I don't think I've worn them even once since I got married almost 8 years ago, so what's the point in keeping them any longer?
Today we went to the Apple Cider Mill. It was so much fun! The weather was great, and we had a lot of fun! Here is my nephew Cooper with a goat sniffing him, or maybe he's trying to eat him. I'm not sure.
Here is the goat and one of her kids that were born that day! It was very exciting to see such a new life in front of us.
The peacock decided to show off for us! Beautiful!

Rose and Turner, being cute for the camera.We had such a good time. Lacy was in 7th heaven, looking at all the cute baby animals! There were so many different animals to look at-- ducks, guineas, peafowl, rabbits, goats, sheep, cattle, chickens, and a pig! They have gardens and a field for crops and lots and lots of animals. And apples are only $.89 a pound there everyday! And they're GOOD! Plus the cider and freshly made donuts are a big bonus. After we had wandered around looking at all the animals, I bought a dozen donuts and a bag of apples and some raspberry apple cider. I shared the donuts with all my sister's kids (she brought all 6 of them, and it was quite a riot!) and with my kids. The spring flowers were blooming and the animals were all new, and other than the misbehavior of several children (I'm not naming any names here, but you know who you are!) it was a glorious day!

Hey, I'm perfectly innocent. I was busy taking pictures of animal bottoms!

And of course, I'm a perfect angel...didn't you see my halo?

This is Landon, by the way...

Wow, Landon, I had no idea that an 8 year old had such a grasp on proper punctuation! Your mom must have taught you good when you were homeschooled! And what are you doing up at 11pm?

LOL! I'm such a dork.
