Farm Show!

Last weekend, we went to the PA Farm Show with Grandma and Grandpa and Bethany. We went down Friday night and had an early birthday celebration for Grandma and then spent all day Saturday taking in all the sights and sounds. The kids LOVED it and we had a great time together.
Yummy homemade applesauce.
Happy Birthday!!

On the shuttle bus over to the Farm Show complex.

Grandpa took care of Natalie all day and helped her pet the animals.

And Blake got to ride in the backpack with Brian... I only had to take care of the diaper bag. :)
Huge Bison

Very big bull-- look at that neck!
Don't fall in the pig pen!
The sheep and goats were getting sheared and washed and dried as we walked through.
They all wore these little covers afterwards!

It was fun to see how excited the kids were.

See the egg?!
Natalie loved the babies.

Definitely a highlight of the day.... all the piglets fighting for milk, they were climbing all over each other and squealing. It was quite entertaining!
The Rodeo

Lunch time at the Food Court
Having fun on the tractors.

They bolted two tractors together to make a hybrid!

Fighting it... he managed to make it all day without sleeping!

Afterwards, we ate dinner at Wegmans.
What a fun day! :)
Our neighbor Camron and his mom came over with Elefun the other day.
The trunk blows out little butterflies that you try to catch.
Natalie started a little gym class once a week. She loves it!

We are living in a winter wonderland these days... snow just about every day, ice and freezing cold temps. Are you cold yet, our Hawaii friends? :)
Baby update: I'm 36 weeks now! I'll try to post another belly shot soon. We find out this week if he is head down... hoping so since Blake was breech and we had to have him turned. Either way, I've been working hard and everything's washed and ready for when he decides to arrive! :)

I love the farm show! I miss going. I am sure our kids would love it! It is really cold here right now, at least in our standards for this area, it was 22 today. We are freezing! My blood had thinned too much to handle this weather. :)

Looks like the kids had fun! I'm sorry I'm so hit or miss here, you don't have the Follow Me up on your blog so I don't get updates when you write.

I can't believe you're 36 weeks already! Did you know that Tina and Matt are having another one? She's due Feb 10, so you're both due around the same time correct?

God Bless

Isn't PA a great place to live! Especially when you have family so close! Glad to see you all enjoying your time here! Some of these cold days could make you miss Hawaii!
