On Monday we visited the small local zoo. Beth and her kids came up and met us! Love blogger meet-ups!
|Jack, M, and JP. JP was not too into getting a photo!|
|Fighting over who gets their hand pecked by a giant emu.|
|Rolling down the hill, which the security nazi kept yelling at us for. It's the LAWN seats!|
The next day we visited Great Grandma...
Then the climax of the week - the trip to the "big city!"
|"Howdy Pard!" ~ Lego Woody|
|That's a real background! Totally looks like a green screen!|
|Future Chicago fireman?|
|Mastering the art of chopsticks. He's a natural.|
|View from the top of the Hancock Building|
|Top of the Navy Pier ferris wheel!|
And finally, farm day! I'm so honored that this was one of the top 5 days of M's life. Although I'm not so naive as to think it was because she got to hang out with ME! I think it had more to do with the little oinking creatures...
|Some of the girls were a little shy...|
|...and some jumped right in!|
|But not to be outdone...|
|Ok, this is probaby pig #312387 that she held. And yes...she's kissing it.|
|The piggy barn|
|Seriously...she was fearless|
|Grampa Farmer Lehe. Also known to some of you as Representative Lehe!|
|Getting their tractor licenses. They'll be haulin' beans by harvest.|
|He used to be able to stand upright in this. *sad face*|
|Blogger meet-up! Megan, Beth, me, and Jenny!|
