John and I have had a lot of fun family visits this summer! We love having guests at our house and showing them the lovely town of Lawrence!
My mom has been up to visit a few times and we make an amazing strawberry-rhubarb pie with rhubarb fresh picked the day before in Minnesota.
While she was here we had a huge flash flood and our yard looked like this for an hour:
We have a creek just behind our fence and the water in our yard was running rapidly. At the highest, I think it was up about 12-14 inches!
Mom also came out to the barn to visit and got to see Boomer!
We have also had John's sister's family up to visit for John's Birthday. We had a blast with his sister, her husband and their two kids! We adore our niece and nephew and had so much fun with them! Kami is almost 3 and Xander is almost 1. They came out to the barn to see the horses because Kami LOVES horses. I had nothing to do with that, I swear. It surely wasn't the pony rides and horse books. Or subtle hints about horses being the best animals ever. I asked Kami what she knew about horses and she said "Horses are gentle". I almost fell over dead. That girl is the cutest thing I have ever seen!
We are so lucky to have such great family!
