The other thing that I have been looking at is a blog of this young woman who is incredible. Her blog is: http://www.thepioneerwoman.com/ She has some great ideas, recipes, photos and stories to share take a gander at her sight also. Read the story of how she met her husband. It is really romantic if you are into that and may bring a few tears to your eyes depending on your mood!
Emily was so excited to be able to see the animals at the fair. I am sure they will have a few of these at their property soon. She was not so sure about the camel and he was the sweetest thing - although I have heard they are not especially friendly. This little guy was so cute and his big eyes just got to you! She loved the baby chicks over in the educational area. BTW that is a cows hind end she is trying to pet if you couldn't recognize the species!
Emily had so much fun at the fair - she wanted to ride on the Giant Ferris Wheel twice - the first time she sat there in motionless just amazed at how high she was and how far she could see. The second time she was a little more wiggly if you know what I mean. On the bumper cars Papa and Emily were quite the Mario and Danica of that ride! Of course you see me on the Merry-go-Round with Em and that is just about my speed!

Emily wanted Cousin Bailey to come over to Gramma's and have a slumber party with her. Bailey is such a sweetie she spent the morning before we picked her up sewing an apron for Emily. Emily and Bailey played restaurant and splashed each other in the inflatible pool. They even had menu's they made from the craft paper. Bailey brought her makeup and Emily loved having Bailey "make her up". GG Betty (great-gramma) came out and spent sometime with the two of them also. We are so fortunate to be able to have all this time with our sweet pea! I don't want the week to end!
Lynn and Steve are driving to Wisconsin this summer to see Lynn's parents and help them out. Emily and Gramma were on watering duty to make sure all of Lynn's plants survived the summer heat. Lynn surprised Em with special presents for her just for helping her out. This is a bubble whistle that she was so excited to use right away. Emily's job was to leave a dish of cool water for the birdies in the backyard and to help water the plants with the watering can. She also ate strawberries, tomatoes and plums that just happenend to be ripe! Isn't that a lucky thing! It was so fun watching her pick the fruits and eat them right then and there. Thanks Aunt Lynnie!
When I go fishing
I'm always wishing
Some fish will be my prize;
But while I'm fishing
the fish are wishing

Ray was able to take a few days off so he flew in and surprised Emily! We drove up to the property to stay a few days. There is always work that needs to be done and walks that need to be walked and sittin that needs to be sat! This will be their home in the near future!
What else would you expect to see in that office? At least it helped pass the time!!!
The technician was so sweet. She took nearly an hour and explained everything to Jeremy and Teresa. It was so fun and exiciting to actually be able to see our baby! It was moving and wiggling and we got to see the heart beat. Truly life is such a miracle.
And then the technician took the pointer and said "see this" and we said "yes" and we all laughed and made comments and Jeremy was so proud and we couldn't believe it. Jack L Hord will be coming to our lives sometime in the late days of November. I know it is hard to tell but the white straight line in the center of the picture is pointing at Jack's you know what!!
"IT'S A BOY!"
What is it about water and kids - we played pratically everyday in the water! Emily loves getting wet and she loves getting me wet too! She is such a big girl and helps out so much. I can't believe I got to be with her for two whole weeks! So much fun!
