"Watch out! Watch out for the pile of poo!" I repeatedly say examining the ground before I take each step.


Rob doesn't seem as surprised as I am that there is poo all over the place. I guess it makes sense considering there are a zillion cows and horses at this "country fair".


My feet feel very naked all of a sudden, in my flip flops. My toes feel uncomfortably close to the poopy piles all over the place.


Rob can't believe I wore flip flops today. I tell him I was seriously going to wear my high heeled platform sandals. For real, they are in the car. I learned my lesson of the day...wear covered, ugly shoes when going to a farm.

This week has been stressful. It started off in the emergency room and brought an end to something we didn't plan, but something we wanted nevertheless (details I'm not sure I want to share with the Internet). And Sophia had her heart surgery. I feel so bad for my sister for having to deal with that. This past week has been a roller coaster of emotions for me. I'm reminded how much of a miracle having a child is. I am so so lucky to have Hudson. I have hugged him too much and too hard this week. He's enough of a Stinker to pull away from me, showing his annoyance, when I go overboard.

I love the pictures!! Rob you did a great job capturing the "Terrible Two-some!"

I've been also thinking about you, Audrey and how no matter how crazy my days are because of my 3 monkeys, I couldn't picture my life without them...

xoxoxoxo

oh, so sweet! He's so huggable isn't he? Been thinking of your sister too but honestly, I have such a positive feeling about it all...

Hope you're doing ok too (emergency room n all). I'm not so thick so... enjoy life where you're at. You're all looking so good!

And farm poo stays in the shoes for what seems forever. I'm still picking it off since July.

I am so sorry to hear that you were in Emergency Joyce. My heart goes out to you as I know exactly how difficult that is. There's nothing that can be said except cuddle that sweet boy you have at home. Take care of yourself.

I can't believe how much of a trying couple years it's been for your family. You all deserve so much happiness.

Great pictures Sister. I'm happy that you are giving so many cuddles to Hudson and he is giving you cuddles too.

The shoe situation reminds me of the time we played golf and you wore wedge heals.
