Slate Run Historical Farm

We visited Slate Run last weekend. We have been wanting to go there and it didn't disappoint. We had a really nice time and when we were all done we went to this diner that was down the street. The diner was housed in a very old building that used to be a general store so it was also cool too. While we were having lunch I asked Jimmy what his favorite animal was. He had gotten to pet the big mommy cow and her 6 day old calf, a huge plow horse, saw sheep and cock-a-dos (roosters), turkeys, geese and pigs. What do you think he said his favorite animal was? The piggies. I guess that pig bite - which he still brings up any chance he can get - wasn't quite as traumatic as I had thought.

Jimmy playing with the marble game. He loved this thing!

Jimmy was so excited to see the animals he kept saying, "Oh my gosh!"

It was a really great day! We actually went and drove by a house that is for sale out that way. Beautiful house on 5 acres (and really, really cheap) but it wasn't quite right... And we're not actually read to buy again yet. But doesn't hurt to LOOK!

I also heard some sad news today. I friend from high school that I had reconnected with via facebook lost his younger brother. Really tragic situation. He was recently married and just 32 years old! I hurt so much for his family and new wife when I heard about this. Such a terrible situation. Keeping you in my thoughts Ben!
