Really - even with the heat wave [Heat Wave? What is 104 degrees with 115 degree heat index between friends, I ask?] it was SO great and surprising and fun.
It was also so incredibly quiet and easy. Something about being out in the middle of nowhere, while navigating a one level home, had to be the best thing that has happened to us in so, so long.
There were crafts, swimming, horseback riding, watermelon eating contests, the county fair!!!, bonfires, board games, hanging out, laughing and eating to the stupid!* SO GOOD!
Best line of the week? "Okay - who downloaded a picture of a horse penis on my computer?"
Funnily enough no one would admit that one to Skippy. Hmmm.
[No. It wasn't our youngest.]
Here it is:
[I am a 12 year old boy. I admit it. Hush up. ::still giggling::]
We are home, safe, sound and sated. Nothing could be better.
Here is a little tickler of what is up tomorrow - the Orange County Fair was very rewarding to Miss Wallene - Come take a peek:
I want to thank Amy for giving Wallene the boost to enter this particular picture - Your compliment went a long way - and LOOK! Blue Ribbon!
Wait 'till y'all see tomorrow. It's all fun. :)
And no private horse parts will be involved. I promise. Unless I miss something else my husband downloaded. giggle
I will leave you with a lovely sunset we enjoyed over the mountains of Virginia.

I hope you all had a wonderful week and the one coming up will be even better.
[*"eating to the stupid" is a Skippy Family phrase meaning eating past being full. It was great!]
