May 26,2008, Emily came to stay with us.  For 5 weeks, we enjoyed her company and had some really good times.  We miss her now that she is back home in Alabama, but we think of her every day!

We hope that she will come visit us next summer too!

Here are some photos of how we spent our 5 weeks.  A lot of them involve horses! :)


When Emily first got here, it was her 11th birthday...

and she was shy, at first


Then she met Cricket and very soon they were friends.

We all went strawberry picking....and

played in the sprinkler and the pool

And that was just the beginning.


More fun with Emily
