Dorks, Jeeps, and Horses

So no one else is dorky enough to be hooked on a toddler snack??? :-)

About a month ago we visited some friends who live on the Wisconsin/Illinois border (they are in Wisconsin, right across the street is Illinois). They live out in the country and have 2 little boys and 2 horses. Their older boy is 6 months older than Lindsey and their younger boy is almost a year older than Allison. They also have one of those kid sized jeeps or whatever you call them. I was surprised that Lindsey had no qualms about driving it all over the place. At one point their younger son drove around with Allison in the passenger seat for over 1/2 hour. Allison LOVED it. Riding the horse, not so much at first, as you will see. But she did ride for a little bit. Lindsey, on the other hand, loved riding the horse. I had to walk alongside Allison while she rode as my friend led the horse around. The horse was HUGE! I was probably more scared than Allison. :-)

I used to live right on the IL/WI border myself! (Salem, WI) Lovely territory. Lots of snow, though.

I love the photos with the wind blowing in the girls' hair. Such natural beauty!

We tried Hope on a pony ride at our home town festival this go here as well. She wouldn't even get on. :) Maybe next year.


P.S. - Never tried the Gerber treats. Guess I'll have to check them out.

Eileen, how awesome for your girls, they look like they really enjoy driving, thank goodness it will be a few years for our girls to start driving, it's bad enough having 2 boys driving. LOL Hey, I know we had talked about the Lifest in WI, did you see where that will be Stevens first concert since the loss of Maria, I am sure it will be quit emotional. Lot's of prayer will be needed to get him through that I am sure, not sure if we are going or not????
