I follow this blog.

It's called On the Front Porch, because Wendy has two little boys, like I do. They aren't twins but they are both boys and plus, I think Wendy's hilarious. Anyway, on Sundays, Wendy posts Small Town Snapshot Sunday pictures and I have linked a post from the Clark Co. 4-H fair on her post. Here is the link to my STSS. Hope you all had a great weekend.
Here are a few more pictures from this weekend spent at the Zoo, Falls of the Ohio and the fair.

Is this not one of the cutest things? He's called a cotton top tamarin and He's in the monkey house for the woolly monkeys. I haven't seen them before yesterdays visit, but I'm sure he's been there for a while. There are two of them, but the other one was kinda camera shy.

These pictures on the carousel at the zoo are from several trips around. Apparently, for zoo members, in the summer they have free rides on Saturday evenings, starting at 6 p.m. You might be able to see the green stickers on our shirts that say, "Get Wild at the Zoo". For the last ride, Tyler finally decided that he wanted to ride a horse that goes up and down. He loved it and we laughed through the biggest part of the ride. He's so sweet when he wants to be.

Me, Tyler, Jake, Eden and David at the Falls of the Ohio, it wasn't an easy trek to get down to the fossil beds, but it was worth it, they all had a good time, poor David slid on a slippery rock and got a little wet and the boys had to be told repeatedly not to run since there isn't an inch of level terrain but all in all it was fun. I love the picture of Jake playing in the sand. He loves to get dirty.


  1. I love that first picture of the fossil beds, with louisville in the background!
    I also follow her blog.

  2. Here in North Texas most of anywhere you go you can find fossils. We especially like to hunt the roadcuts for echinoids (sea anemones) and sponges. Down at the North Sulpher River near Ladonia, TX we have found shark teeth, mososaur verts and teeth, as well as fossilized mammalian bones.

    Your kids will remember moments like these spending time with the family. Best thing is that you get to take souvenirs home to remind you of these memories.
