DOWN ON THE FARM

LAST NIGHT WAS GIRL SCOUT NIGHT AT THE FARM. SHAWN DIDN'T REALLY WANT TO GO BUT I DRUG HIM THERE ANYWAY! LOOKS LIKE HE ENDED UP HAVING FUN TO ME. THIS IS MY FAVORITE PICTURE (EXCEPT FOR THE ONE OF SAMI ON THE BOUNCING BRIDGE FARTHER DOWN) AFTER SEEING SHAWN DO THIS OTHERS THAT WERE VISITING THE FARM STARTED MAKING UP THEIR OWN CRAZY SHOTS! I LOVE IT WHEN SHAWN COMES WITH US. HE ALWAYS MAKES IT FUN FOR THE KIDS. I AM JUST THE PHOTOGRAPHER! WHEN WE ARRIVED WE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE LOADED ONTO THE WAGON BUT THERE WERE SO MANY PEOPLE WE HAD TO WAIT FOR AN HOUR. LUCKILY A CADET TROOP WAS ALSO THERE AND THEY KEPT THE YOUNGER GIRLS BUSY WITH DIFFERENT GAMES AND SONGS. EVERY GIRL HAD COOKIES AND HOT CIDAR AND Got A CORN MAZE PATCH FOR THEIR VESTS.










AS ALWAYS THE INSEPARABLE TWO WAITING FOR THE DUCK SHOW! TO BAD WE DIDN'T GET TO SEE IT. IT SOUNDS VERY INTERESTING!











SHAWN SCARED THE GIRLS LOOKING THROUGH THIS WINDOW. HE KEPT SWINGING HIS EYES BACK AND FORTH. IT WAS A LITTLE FREAKY!





AAHHHH SHE'S SO CUUUUTE!!!!!

THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE PICTURES I TOOK ALL NIGHT! SHE IS HAVING SO MUCH FUN.

THEY AREN'T SUPPOSED TO BE ON THIS TRACTOR BUT AS THE TWO DADS SAID WHAT'S THE WORSE THEY ARE GOING TO DO? KICK US OUT! WE ARE DONE ANYWAY. BUT..... WHEN SHAWN GOT THE BIG IDEA TO GET ON FARMER PETES TRACTOR CHRISTABELLA'S DAD SAID "I'M OUTTA HERE!" SUCH A CHICKEN!!! SHAWN IS ONLY HALF A CHICKEN BECAUSE ALTHOUGH HE WASN'T BRAVE ENOUGH TO SIT ALL THE WAY DOWN HE'S AT LEASED STANDING ON IT!




































I DESPERATELY TRIED TO GET A CUTE PICTURE OF JUST SAMI AND CHRISTABELLA ALONE IN THE CORN MAZE BUT THERE ALWAYS SEEMED TO BE OTHER CHILDREN. OR A GOOFY HUSBAND! IT WAS VERY FRUSTRATING. I LIKE TO TAKE AT LEAST JUST ONE OF THE TWO OF THEM AT EVERY ACTIVITY SO LATER ON WHEN THEY ARE OLDER THEY CAN LOOK BACK AND REMEMBER WHAT FUN THEY HAD TOGETHER. I FINALLY GAVE UP AND DECIDED THE PICTURES WOULD TURN OUT ANYWAY.




















THE GIRLS GOT A MAP BUT HAD A HARD TIME DECIDING WHAT DIRECTION THEY WANTED TO GO. SHAWN TRIED TO HELP THEM BUT THEY WERE ALL RUNNING IN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS. HE FINALY TOOK OVER FOR AWHILE UNTIL THEY COULD AGREE ON WHERE THEY WANTED TO GO. EVENTUALLY THEY MADE IT TO THE SPACE NEEDLE AND SOME FORT. I CAN'T REMEMBER THE SIGNIFICANCE OF IT.





WE FOUND THIS DOG WANDERING AROUND THE FARM. WE WERE TOLD IT LIVES
THERE. THE GIRLS WERE NOT CONVINCED . THEY WERE SO WORRIED ABOUT THAT DOG. IT WAS SO EMACIATED YOU COULD SEE EACH RIB ON ITS RIBCAGE. LOOK AT THE SAD FACE. LUCKILY ON OUR WAY BACK TO THE PARKING LOT WE SAW IT EATING.
