(WARNING: Read at your own risk. You may want to take a break in between and drink some water. This is going to be a long post!. Just giving you fair warning.)
I'm still here but, I have been so busy working and some exciting things have happened to me (this does not include the never ending search for that ever allusive man friend!).
Lets see .....
Late July, some friends and I went to Cahaba (Cawhaba), Alabama and spent some time around the first permanent State capital from 1820-1825. To learn more, click here.
From left to right: Me, Lille, Mary, Rebekah and Grace Ann
Grace Ann standing on the steps of St. Luke's Episcopal Church
St. Luke's Episcopal Church. We didn't get to go inside (they had it locked up) which means that we have to go again!
Walking back from seeing a "historic" (it was really an electrical house) building
Grace and Mary doing ....... whatever it is that Grace and Mary do
Rebekah doing what she does best. Sitting there and looking pretty! :)
Lillie being our guided botanist!
Sisters and best friends!
Grace and I just had to recreate some photos that we took 11 years ago ..... we were so little and we had no clue (and still don't) of what life holds!
In August we took a family vacation to the beach. It was so fun! We were able to rent a condo (that we stayed at when my siblings and I were growing up) and we stayed for almost a week! It was so refreshing to go on vacation especially before harvest!
I also bought my very own camera and I've been having fun with it so, expect alot of pictures :D
Liam being pulled on the boogie board
Benjamin just hanging out
Isn't he cute???
I have an amazing zoom on my camera and I was able to take a picture of the pier at pier park all the way from where our condo was
Liam had a blast!
Benjamin is so photogenic
This bird reminds me of the birds on the "Windex" commercials
My very awesome brother! I love that he has moved back home to the farm
"Aunt, Kate! Take my picture!"
Here is Liam with his sister, Emery Kate
Sunset at the beach!
Benjamin relaxin' in the kiddie pool
I don't know what kind of flower this is but, it was growing on the side of the sand dune
"Benjamin, look at the crab!"
Will, Benjamin and Liam
Emery Kate having fun in her kiddie pool
The love that Amy has for her kids is very evident in this picture! The smile that Emery Kate has is so precious! I love them both!
"Aunt Kate, look at me! I'm wearing 2 hats!"
"Look at me! I'm a turtle"
Ah, the beach! I want to go back!

We harvested peanuts the last of August through November
My Mom's cousin (who I call Uncle) is plowing up the green peanuts so that they can be turned over to dry
For all my Northern (Pennsylvania) friends: This is my Uncle plowing up the peanuts
For all my Northern (Pennsylvania) friends: Daddy operating the peanut picker
Dumping in the peanut trailers so that we can haul the peanuts to town!
Well, I'm off to write part 2 of "What has happened to the Farmers Daughter??" I hope that y'all had fun reading! I'll see everyone in the other post!
