So I think I told ya that last Saturday we went to my Dad and stepmom's house for burgers and dogs and fun.
The new header picture was taken in her breakfast nook right after herding them all back inside for a drink...hence the flushed faces! :-)
Here are some more pics from the day.
Her backyard shares a fence with a fella's small ranch/farm. He has an unsocial donkey, a horse with asthma (oh he sounded so sick!) and a miniature horse that came over to visit after the batteries had died on my camera (sigh)
and 2 Texas Longhorns.
Momma cow is "Sarah" and baby boy is "Bevo"...as named by the owner's grandkids.
Who knows where the kids got the name Bevo???
Hint: I spent a goodly portion of my college years yelling "Bevo for Breakfast!!"
So here we are feeding the cow and the baby bull.
I think I also told y'all that Subvet had to CARRY Sugars inside KICKING AND SCREAMING to eat! She wanted to spend the rest of the year out here talking to the cows and horses!!
Mimi's sunflowers were too tall for Sonshine to reach!!
Here is my attempt to get the traditional group picture in front of the garden...sigh, maybe next spring.
Here are the boys snuggling up on the sofa, quite worn out from the outside fun.
The quilt Mimi put over them is one I made for her 50th birthday. The boys loved it because every other intersecting seam has a button or charm sewn on.
After 4 hours at Grandad and Mimi's house we piled in the car to go to Mass....we were on the road approximately 3.5 minutes before all 3 kids were sound asleep!! (so much for Mass.....)
