our trip home -- part 2

One of the biggest perks for the kids about going home to visit my folks is that they live on a farm.  Jude and Indi got to go on tractor rides with "Goo Goo" (my dad).  Jude got to "help" with chores and they were able to feed the cows grain.  My mom has been working with this special cow, Roxy, so the kids could ride her.

Here are some pics of our experience on the farm.




This picture includes my sis, Emily, (known as Aunt Mi-Mi by the kids):


Jude got to hold the lead rope with GaGa (my mom).  She has celebrity status with the kids.

Thank you Goo Goo and GaGa for such a fun trip!!!!
