Well, not entirely at home. At Aunt Becky’s. On New Year’s Eve day, the entire grand-crew (minus Sara Kelly) went for a ride out to Michael’s sister’s barn to visit the three new sheep, the goats, the horses and the three tortoise eggs (don’t touch). Becky is a vet her family has a menagerie! Steph and Ben rode the miniature draft horse around the riding arena and Dan, Thomas and Scott were content to pet the goats. The sheep were too shy to let anyone pet them. And finally, in the last photo, everyone came back to our place to clean up.
It was colder than it looked when we left home, but the snow and the scourge of little Sara Kelly’s pink eye contagion held off for another couple days, which was a blessing. I put this collage together to remind me of the day and that many and most fun adventures are right at home if we just take time to seek them out.
