  1. I posted my 'catch up' post, then saw you had done the same. Great minds.....

    Only yours is more concise. Mine's more like a novel.

  2. That picture is great! And the beach sounds FABULOUS right about now! :)

  3. What a great picture! Ryan fed some last year, but never got to HOLD one! wow!

  4. I love the look on Julia's face--priceless! You've been busy, friend!

  5. Just found you blog. I think the goat eating the hair is a classic! :O)

  6. I love your catch up by numbers posts! Your fair ride reminds me of my post about ride...the "wacky caterpillar" might get a kick out of it.;)

  7. Love the post! Love the picture too! Wright Co or Carver?


  8. I just listened to a book on tape that was 20 CDs long. It took forever. In the end I liked it but it took a while to get moving.
