A Day on the Farm

The Sanner Farm Got Milk Girls

We all had a blast visiting Denise and Kenny Sanner on their farm. Denise invited the girls from the mlpa board for a barbeque at her farm so those of us who haven't experienced farm life could do so with our families. Jack, Anthony, Michael, Jennine, Matt, Abby, Luke and myself decided to go.
It was so much fun to see this beautiful farm land, visit with the girls and their families, see the cows, watch them being milked and going on a hay ride. Jennine swears we planned this so we all could do farm layouts for our scrapbooks! (now what was my child thinking about??)
The only said part was that I left my camera behind in beautiful Kutztown. Luckily, Patti S. retrieved it and I will pick it up at mlpa on thurs. Here are a few pics that others have shared.


I was tagged by the wonderful Rollie!!

These are the rules.... each player starts with 7 random fact about themselves on their Blog. People who are tagged need to blog 7 facts about themselves and post the rules as well. At the end of the blog list 7 people you are tagging. Let them know that they are tagged by leaving them a comment.

**I worked for the Phila. 76ers for 4 yrs. and enjoyed every second of it. Met all the players and their families. I love basketball**

I could eat only appetizers as my meal.

**I was born and raised in West Phila. Was there till I was 19. However, was sent out to Chester County for high school and college- Villa Maria Academy and Immaculata.

** I started working in a hospital when I was 14 yrs old. I worked at Graduated Hospital, Delaware county Memorial Hos. St. Christopher's hosp., Lankenau Hospital and Metropolitan Hosp., Springfield.

**I did my 12 months dietetic internship at Penn State, main campus and it was the best year of my life as a single person.

**I enjoy buying things for others and seeing the joy on their faces when they get them. It makes me so very happy. I never want anything in return. I got it by seeing happiness on the person's face.

**I have been vacationing in Sea Isle City, NJ since I was 9 yrs old. It started out with my parents, two brothers and eventually my baby sister. My father died at the shore which was his favorite place on earth. My mother almost died at the shore but we took her home before she left this world. Then all my siblings would rent a huge house for two weeks together. For the past 12 yrs., Jack and I have owned our own home and we love having our family and friends come visit us. We call our home at the shore the "Happy House" on Happy Lane.

With that, I tag:

Michael's day

Tomorrow is Michael's last day of school. The end of 6th grade for him. Today was an Awards assembly. Michael was honored by receiving the Mercy Award for his class. This award is given to a child who shows respect, goes out of his/her way to be kind and helpful to others and is just a good all round student. We are all very proud of him. Way to go, Mike!! Love, Mom
PS- my "baby" is getting so grown up. Soon he will be a teenager. Yikes, three in the house at one time.
