That's our Ryan!

While skimming through these pictures I noticed we have a tendancy to pick on Ryan. Not sure why.... It's just fun I suppose. Saving a choking victim? Just giving a friendly choking? You decide!

Creation Museum in Petersburg KY

We enjoyed our visit to the Creation Museum in June. There is a beautiful botanical gardens on the ground and my pictures failed to do it justice. Here are the kids posing for a picture on a wooden bridge. The trails were really neat to walk around and lush vegetation was everywhere.

This very happy triceratops seemed glad to see us. The museum abounded in dinosaurs, both skeletal and "fleshed" out.

There were also quite a few scenes from the Bible with animated people/animals. Here Noah's sons are working on the ark.

I somewhat forget if this was supposed to Noah, or some other patriarch. I liked the intense look in his eyes. The figures were very impressive and seemed like if you reached out to touch them they might be real.

Cordell being "licked" by a some sort of dinosaur. Yes, this was a bad attempt at an illusion!

Now that's big!

Just past the Indiana border in Northwest Ohio we drove through a wind power plant. We were amazed at how large these are. That is a red pickup truck and people standing at the base of it. (You may be able to click on the picture to enlarge it a few times.) We counted at least 50 of these and they are still building more. Only one was turning so far. Interesting....

More pictures from the farm...

The grainery building. There used to be a wonderful tall corncrib behind this building that was great for climbing around in. I can remember sliding down the corn to help push the corn down when loading the wagon. The main risk was coming across mice!

The old Mac Gas Delivery Truck

The barn where I (Pam) spent many glorious hours playing as I was growing up. It had two wonderful big lofts, ladders, walkways, a stable & milking area, ropes & pullies, home to grain trailers, combines, and other such treasures.

Visiting the rhubarb patch is a necessity for our family of rhubarb lovers!

Happiness is cutting rhubarb!
