pics from kentucky trip...finally!

katelyn and annie on crampa's mare. surprisingly annie's the one who loved to ride. katelyn would just so annie couldn't show her up, but annie's the one who loves it.
the is a pic of my parents' backyard...the girls had so much fun out there blowing bubbles, playing frisbee, and playing tag.
ok, so there have been many times that derek and i have wanted to kill this dog, but after this trip i don't hate him AS much. samantha followed him everywhere saying "Where's the poppy?" over and over and over again. he was so good to take her torture for 10 days!! now that we're home she always says, "Where's Du?" (the dog's name is Duke....)samantha having a good old time with the hose. every time she would spray herself it would take her breath away...and then she would do it again!
i put the girls to work washing our van! it had rained really hard the night before, so there were worms all over the drive way. katleyn was totally disgusted by this and made grandma help her pick up a bunch of them and throw them back in the grass. katelyn had to use leaves because there was no way she was touching them. annie on the other hand thought it was cool and she didn't mind the worms at all. oh, this is my parents' front yard.

every morning and evening the big girls would go with grandpa to the property to feed the horses and play. they loved going, and they got to spend alot of great time with my dad. they had fun picking flowers and running free!when the ground was dry enough grandpa would take the truck up to the horses...i never witnessed this, but the girls would sit in the bed of the truck while he drove up the property and they would be bouncing all over the place...laughing their heads off! they LOVED it. even now when i ask them about it they start cracking up just thinking about it.kristina came out to kentucky for the last 3 days of our trip. i'm happy to report she's bigger than me!! which she should be since she 6 weeks farther along than me...but i was worried i would be much bigger and i don't know if my ego would've handled it!!!katelyn and annie with crampa. official kentuckians.

I think you look great! Kentucky looks wonderful. Maybe I should move there. That is exactly the kind of place I want to raise my kids.

Your dad had e-mailed me most of these pictures, but he conveniently left out the last one. Needless to say, it's my favorite. I wondered how long he'd be able to resist becoming a REDNECK. J/K

a) Annie and I are clearly meant to be buds. I have a picture of me on a nearly identical horse when I was a kid.

b) When did Kristina's belly get HUGE???
