Kentucky Visit

Okay, as promised, our Kentucky visit pictures are finally downloaded and posted. Beware, there are LOTS of pictures as many out-of-town friends and family have been pestering me for these (not really, but I know they've been checking daily for them!).

Day 1 - Livestock Show
I like this picture because I love my pants, they're just fun!

Lallie playing in the dirt. Keep in mind, we don't have dirt in S. Florida, we have sand and it's normally covered in fire ants, so Lallie had never really played in the dirt. This was a little of a controversy because....

....well, it's a livestock show. Lallie was pulled from the dirt and hands sanitized, so no worries!

Lallie thought the chickens were just amazing. She loved them!

This poor little lamb was ridden back and forth, multiple times, by several little girls. While cute, we all felt a little bad for the lamb.

Day 2: The Tobacco Festival
Daddy and Lallie at the Folk Art Museum

At the Tobacco Festival parade. Who doesn't love a balloon (that cost $4.00!)?

The Hillbilly float.

This is the single only picture we have of Lallie and Granny. Thank you husband for taking it or I wouldn't of had any of them at all!

Relaxing after the parade.

On parade day, we also got to see Uncle Wayne and Aunt Judy who came in from North Carolina and Uncle Lynn and Aunt Susan from Lexington. So, we were thrilled to see everyone since we missed this year's family reunion.

Day 3: Hanging out at home.
For those of you who saw my home grown food post, here are the gooseberries. Yum!

Lallie and Uncle Pat's girlfriend, Jess. Lallie and Jess are great buds!

Day 4: Weiner Roast
Cousin Adam's puppy, Axel.

We all love this picture of Lallie's Great Aunt Patricia and her. They both just look (and are) so happy!

And a weiner roast isn't a weiner roast without smores for dessert! Double yum!

Uncle Patrick and Lallie. Again, great buds!

Day 5: Visiting Great Aunt Patricia and Uncle Larry Dale.
Lallie and Callie the cat. We ate Patricia's homemade apple pie....every.last.crumb!

We miss everyone so much and can't wait until our next visit north to either one of our family homes in Kentucky. Love to all!
