I know, I know. I've been remiss again. Part of it's busyness with life, part of it is the fact that I left my camera in PA last time I was at my parents', but neither is a great excuse. I'm sorry.
In an effort to get me to post on my blog, my friend Angela tagged me. Here goes:
This is the 4th picture in the 4th file located in "Pictures."
This photo was taken in 2007 at the US Dept. of Agriculture's Field Day. My family loves loves loves this day and we make it a point to go every year (except that one year when they decided not to do it--sad).
On their grounds, the Dept. of Agriculture sets out all this big farm equipment and big tents. The kids can climb on the giant tractors, push all the buttons and pull all the levers. Inside the tents, there are educational stations set up for kids and adults to enjoy. In this photo, Maia is doing some kind of hands-on science thing while her little sisters look on.
It's important to note that the things my kids associate most with the Field Day are the snacks. One year, we all ate chocolate-covered crickets and another year, Michael and the kids all ate chocolate-covered cicadas!
