The Safari Park

While we were on our trip late May early June we did a lot of different things. I went zip lining for the first time with my nephew who graduated (Soooooo fun I would totally do it over and over again), went to different places I had never been before (like Branson), and got to go on other adventures including going though a Safari … Read More The Safari Park

On to Arkansas and Razorbacks…

So once the graduation and those festivities were complete we headed to my in-laws in Arkansas. Ok so the drive there was amazing… from the Arch in St. Louis to the beautiful countryside in Illinois, Missouri, and Arkansas… I was in heaven. While in Arkansas we did a lot including…. the Wal-Mart museum…   The Daisy BB Gun museum… The University of Arkansas campus… And stadium… … Read More On to Arkansas and Razorbacks…

October has come…

And is almost gone… Today we finally got time and went to a local pumpkin farm to get out pumpkins. It was a fun time and now we are looking more fall at our place. Hope your fall is going well. 🙂

Chicken Flowers

Over the weekend hubby and I decided to have a yard sale. Our neighbor down the road decided to join us with some of her stuff. After things were cleaned up and the remainder of our stuff was donated and my neighbor had me come up to her place and she gave me some of her zinnia flowers and she gave me this really … Read More Chicken Flowers

Louisville Zoo…

While on our trip we did a lot of driving to check out land and new places. We also had a day of fun and went to Louisville to the Sluggers Museum and the zoo. I took a lot of photos at the zoo and thought I would share some with you today 🙂 There were tigers… And Lions… And polar bears… oh my… … Read More Louisville Zoo…

Whites Ferry

Have you ever been on a cable operated ferry… if you have been to Whites Ferry then you have 🙂 A few weeks back my mom, step-father, and I went on this neat little ferry in Maryland. It starts out on one side of the water… The cars load up… I think it holds 15 cars at a time… It then starts across towards … Read More Whites Ferry

New roosts and boxes

The chickens should be happy now… we spent the whole weekend building them new laying boxes and perches. My mom and step-father came up to help us. It was a bigger job then I thought, but it is done now and the girls now just need to get used to it 🙂 They now have 9 new boxes and 3 old ones as well … Read More New roosts and boxes

On the Rocks…

We have become a hiking family… whenever we can we hit the trails and explore. The pups are good at getting over the rocks and though tight spaces we have to walk in. We got a new pop up bowel for them to drink out of and our backpack holds enough water for up to a 2 hour hike. They are good company on … Read More On the Rocks…

In case you haven’t noticed…

In case you haven’t noticed I love my dogs. Each spring, summer, and fall I find a new love for them when we get to hike together. They make the trails safer and more fun. Since the weather has stayed nice this week we have hiked and gone to the river for Chase to swim a lot. The dogs have really gotten into hiking … Read More In case you haven’t noticed…

Roadside America

Have you ever been to… It is a cute little Amish roadside place in Pennsylvania with a quaint little roadside shop (my husband loves the shoo fly pie there) and a miniature town museum. The museum I don’t have pictures of but you can check it out at http://www.roadsideamericainc.com/ . We have been to the museum and shop before, but on our trip we went … Read More Roadside America

When the train comes along…

I love walking on the trails and watch the sun come though the trees… it is like a guide to where you should go… a guiding light. I also like it when you are walking some place you have been before and you see something new or exciting. Since I was a little kid I have loved to watch trains pass and count their cars. … Read More When the train comes along…

Down by the river…

Yesterday we went for a hike with the dogs at one of the battlefields we like in the summer as it has a river that the dogs can play in. Let me clarify… Chase loves to be in the water and our lab, as some of you know, hates the water. We are lucky if we can get his paws in the river… The … Read More Down by the river…
