Queen Annes County Faire

In keeping with the current theme of making our kids relive our childhoods "When I was a kid I used to..." posts; we went to the 4H Faire recently (which also serves as the County Faire). Full of farm animals, farm equipment, and some of the most rickety rides you will likely ever risk your families life on, a good time is guaranteed for all!

Actually we had a really good time, and Lauren brought the kids out earlier on in the day to see all the animals separately, so when we went back in the evening it was #2 for most of the fam.

Just Like a Day at The Beach

One of our favorite things growing up was going to stay at the beach house (God rest its soul :) in Rehoboth DE. Sadly that awesome old beach house is now gone (to make room for...well I'm still not sure why), but the beach and boardwalk still remain, so we try and make it a point to go at least once a year with the kids.

Here's some pictures from that fun day including beach chillin, riding the rides, and of course Grottos!

Kids Combine Ride

I remember getting off the bus as a kid and waiting in the yard with Mom for a chance to ride on the combine with Mr. Danny. So when he came out this year to harvest the corn, it was a perfect chance for Eden and James to help daddy live old memories vicariously to do something that I loved as a kid (as presumably all Eastern Shore kids do...right?)





One of the cooler things about homeschooling, is that a trip to the local farm (which also happens to be family) to see the miniature cows and help harvest the hay; serves double duty as a field trip.



As always you can see the whole set by following this link over to our Flickr Page.
