Ohio Vacation Pictures - Rolling Ridge Ranch

We visited the Rolling Ridge Ranch ( in Ohio during our vacation with Grandma Jo and Grandpa Dennis.

We rode in a horse-drawn carriage like below.

We saw a zonkey, which is a donkey-zebra cross.

Sam fed the goats.

Emily fed the camels.

Sam fed elk while Benjamin and Dad watched.

More elk, cooling off in the pond.

Family Reunion Pictures

Finally getting around to looking at the family reunion photos and realized that I didn't take too many! And I got virtually none of Sam! He spent most of his time playing Nintendo DS with his cousin, Kevin!

Here's one of us with Rob's parents.
Here's Emily with cousin Katie.

Benjamin and Grandpa napping.

Another Samism

We took a walk the other night and cut across a parking lot. Sam said we were "jack-crossing"! (He meant jay-walking!)

4th of July pictures

We had a nice, quiet weekend at home - a staycation as Rob calls it! It started with sleeping in on the 4th and then spending time in Lindenwood park riding their rented bikes and eating ice cream! We attended the RedHawks game Friday evening (and they won!). Saturday we attended a post-Independence Day picnic and fireworks show at friends.

We all drove a "double surrey" in Lindenwood Park early Friday afternoon.

Benjamin's 9 month pictures

I can't believe I'm so late getting these posted! I wanted to get them sent to the grandparents first, but it just didn't happen. I do have the pictures ready to mail, so it's time to post!
