Our Turtle Adventure

We are home in Missouri for a month and my children have been able to enjoy the great outdoors without the fear of sand fleas. We have come accross some other animals that we don't get to expreience as much at home.
Meet Emmi the turtle.

Frogee wants to know what it is.

He thinks he is pretty cool!

Birdee wants to have him come to her and calls her like she does our puppies!
Paul wants in on the action.

She was building Emmi a house.

A tunnel was a better idea

Pony Rides make for a full day!

Princess getting her helmet on. I am not sure if she was more excited to ride or wear a helmet.

Princess on King Arthur. He was a wonderful pony.

From the conversations on the way home I have to say that she liked it.

Pumpkin Patch Part 2

Princess running in the feild of pumpkins.

Frogee and his pumpkin. He is sitting now all by himself!

After the pumpkin patch we drove a little farther up the road to ride a pony for the first time. Even though it was nap time I could not miss out on this opportunity.
