down on the farm

Posted on July 25th, 2008 by Kymberlie.

this month we finally took the trip to tompkinsville, kentucky to visit with thomas’ aunt brenda and uncle richard on their cattle farm. uncle john and colleen came as well and we had a wonderful family trip. elliot spent a lot of time mooing at the cows, chasing guinea hens, and tackling their docile outdoor cat, oscar. he also tackled a little three year old girl he met at a masonic lodge barbeque as he tried to lovingly hug her. she was upset for a minute but eventually got over it and then came begging for more.  at that barbeque we got to listen to some fantastic blue grass music and i got to watch my first ever cake walk!  aunt brenda’s grandson, joseph, won two cakes in a row!

thomas got a little obsessed with a vehicle that they call “the gator” down there on the farm. it’s sort of like a super-charged golf cart with a trailer that we used to drive through the pastures and up and down all the rolling kentucky hills. we also got to take a special ride in the big tractor with uncle richard! the whole trip was such a treat and we can’t wait to go back. Check out the photos here and the videos.  we miss you, aunt brenda and uncle richard!

    Hi Guys, Glad you had a great time in Kentucky. Dewey was great as usual. I was embarassed by all the beer and wine bottles so I got someone to take them away for recycling. Next year we have a bigger place and Tim promises to get back plus we hope the Florida crowd can all make it. My kids don’t know the girls in Jacksonville. God willing we’ll all be there again. Give a big hug to Elliot. Love, Aunt Patti
