Flower interuption

I was out in my Grandma's garden today, and some of her flowers caught my attention.
Out came the camera, an with a little Picasa help, here are my shots ( I will warn you they are not any where near the quality of Noah's, but I thought I would try some of the tips he has given me!).
Hope they bring a smile to your face!

The Cousins Came.... Part 1

Last week our family got the wonderful experience of having our Cousins Nicholas and Thomas, and Grammy and Grandpa come down to visit us on our farm. This was the boys first long car ride (9 hours in all!) but I heard the did fine. They arrived on Thursday night and slept till 9:00 a.m. the next morning! On Friday I took Nicholas, Thomas and Billy to Green Dragon ( a local flea market/farmers market) they had a great time and tried to convince me to let them buy a hamster as their souvenir, of course my reply was NO! (Aunt Fanny you should thank me!!!)
Then on Saturday they enjoyed a true Lancaster County experience when our farm was turned into the Shirktown threshing day. It was like having a small country fair all about tractors and of course Threshing machines. There must have been at leased a 2,000 people here! The boys Loved it, they rode every horse and tractor ride about 3 times each! In the evening everyone joined Noah and I at the Reading Children's Ministry picnic.
In all the first few days of their time was busy! Below are pictures of the threshing days.
Stay tuned for part 2 of the cousins came to hear more of our exciting adventures!
