Wide Open Spaces

On Saturday we headed over to the farm to visit my dad and check out "operation pumpkin patch." It's sloooowly coming along. But it's hay cutting season and there's over 200 acres to bale so that takes precedent over our little pumpkins.  

And you can't hang out in Lincoln County West Virginia and NOT ride a four-wheeler. And helmets? We don't need no stinkin' helmets! Of course they putting around at snail speed but Little Bit didn't want to get off of the thing.





Unfortunately, there was a little "incident" while we were visiting. Sophie accidentally tripped over a sleeping Boston terrier. Of course it startled the dog, so he turned around and snipped at the Soph, IN THE FACE! OUCH. It left a small mark and his paw caught the corner of her lip so of course blood went everywhere. Little Bit was a fireball of emotions. Hurt, scared, and TICKED OFF! She screamed "BAD DOG, NO HURT SOAPIE!" So for the rest of the day she left the little dogs alone and instead played with the huge weimaraners. Go figure, it was the little ankle biter that did the damage.

Geez, I forgot how much land there was over there. Glad to see you had a good time at your dad's. Can't wait for the pumpkins.

And how 'bout Soph giving that dog a piece of her mind?! She is definitely going to be a fireball!!

It's always the little dogs that cause the problems! We have a chihuahua and he can be very grouchy!

I LOVED riding a four wheeler when I was little!

Your dad's land is beautiful.

The shot of Steven and Sophie remind me of Cameron and Ava going around their Nana and Papa's farm on the "mule truck".

Hope Sophie feels better!
