Scenes from Indiana

These aren't the best quality photos, but they were all taken using my phone during our visit to Indiana the last several weeks.  I thought they gave a good snippet of what our time spent there was like.  
 The kids got to meet "Honey" - the newest addition to the household at my parent's place...... we all fell in love with her.  She is a rescue animal - which makes the story so much better.  My parents had been looking for a pony for the grandkids, and while standing in a checkout line at the local nursery, my mother was overheard mentioning that she was looking for a pony.  The lady behind her happened to work for the local Humane Society and mentioned that they had just acquired a pony that needed a new home.  We are all just so pleased with her - she a little sweetheart.  Wish I could have put her in my pocket and brought her back to Texas!
Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie - do I need to say more???  (Rhubarb recipes to follow in later posts.....)

This is the front of the Log Cabin at the LaPorte County Pioneer Land.  We spent A LOT of time here during Fair Week.  That's my son in the front (all blurry) playing a game of washers.  Both of my parents, (and this year myself included) volunteer their time to support this project.  My kids absolutely love hanging out on the front porch, playing with all of the wooden toys and playing the part of "pioneer kids"
This is me...... "Pioneer Woman" ;)  

Chillin' on the front porch of my parent's house.  Cool night air.... AH!

We ate fresh raspberries straight off the bush literally every morning.  

LOTS of time spent in the swimming pool - again, AH!

Little "Pioneer Girl" - she played the part well :)

My son doing his chores - he sure loved helping take care of the horses.  I think he's a natural cowboy :)
