The Farm Show

"Our Cowgirls"

As part of the girls Christmas gift, my parents took Eme and Abby to the Pennsylvania Farm Show. The girls were so excited. They left early Thurs morn (this was back in Jan - but I wasn't blogging then!) and spent the night in a hotel. The hotel had a pool, which the girls were psyched about. This was their first time staying in a hotel. The farm show was amazing - they got to see so many things - chicks hatching, a butter sculpture, show horses, all kinds of animals, etc. They even went to a rodeo Thurs night.

They also ran into (literally!) my Uncle Leland (my mom's brother). The girls have never really had an opportunity to get to know him or vice-versa. So it was really nice that they were able to spend the day with him there.

I'm really glad my parents thought to do this for the girls. They have so many toys already. They really didn't need anything more. It was a great gift - the gift of time and making memories. The girls are already talking about what they are going to do at the farm show when Grandma and Grandad take them again next year.
