Feeding the Horses in Virginia

When the kids visit their grandparents in Virginia, they love to feed the horses next door carrots and apples.  Marlene must have had ten pounds of carrots for our stay!  The neighbors are generous with allowing all the children to visit the animals at the barn, too.  You might remember the pigs. The grass was so high from all the rain in was hard to see the bare feet!

They really respond to on your mark, get set, GO. Must be all that swim team practice and meets!

And the running shot


The four of them are making my summer vacation a lively one!
