About to END!!!

Where in the world has this summer gone????

It seems like you blink your eyes and time flys by, I haven't been getting around to doing to much of anything that needs done.



Less then a week is Rachels birthday with my dad's following two days later , Then Sept. will bring Coby's on the 5th and Jarrod's on the 12th and then Jacobs on the 21st and the only one I have bought for is Coby and I know what to buy Jarrod I just haven't done it yet. As far as the other three I have no clue what to get them. But I will come up with something and the time will come and go and we will be headed for Fall .

I am quite pleased we did get around to doing a few summer day trips and outings with the boys, They are growing so fast and can be such a pleasure to spend time with, It makes me sad to think that I won't be seeing them as much as I normally do with School starting , and the fact that I am starting a part time job.

OK OK I'll tell you about some of our little day trips we took and show some photos from them.

Oak Ridge Farms


There you have the opportunity to ride on a wagon and its drawn by horses and they take you all over the farm grounds and you get to feed the animals from the wagon, It was between going there and the zoo and I am so glad we went there. It was a lot of fun for the boys to feed the unusual animals and get that close to them. below are some pictures I captured that trip.





Mandy feeds an Ostrich and Rachel holds an ostrich egg. Those Ostrich eggs are really heavy
Jarrod really enjoyed feeding the
animals and was very brave with
them



Jayden was a little more cautious as he has had a few encounters with animals trying to take a bite out of him.
Coby we decided was better off just watching as he thought he should get to eat the animal feed instead of feed it to the animals!


Below is a photo of our favorite guy and we named him Shaggy.














This was very interesting a zebra and a Zedonk the driver told us that it was a cross between a zebra and a donkey- see how the donkeys legs are striped, I'm wishing I would have asked if they were mated purposely or if it just happened.





After the wagon ride there was a petting zoo, We all thought the little fuzzy yellow ducks were so cute , I didn't have my camera ready when Aunt Mandy showed one to Coby and he grabbed it by the neck and tried to insert its whole head into his Mouth LOL Yes we saved the poor little duckie. And notice Keith in the background although I chopped off his head he was enjoying himself more then usual also.

They both got to sit on one of the horses that pulled the wagon we rode in that was neat, AT first Jayden said NO but he decided to but seemed really uncomfortable with it , They were really big horses so I could understand that.
Below You can see that Grandma Betty went along also and she enjoyed the animals and liked talking to and Petting the horse but I couldn't get her to sit on one.LOL

OK well that took a lot longer then I thought it would and was much more in depth then I planned on going into for one day SOOO I guess the next Day trip can be put on my Blog tomorrow so Check Back for more of our FUN Day Trips...........
