It has been much too long since we’ve updated all of you wonderful blog readers ๐Ÿ˜€ ย It is too bad that there is not some kind of device that can put your thoughts straight onto a blog post, because there are often times when I am writing one in my head, but don’t have time to sit down and put it down on paper…okay, on screen ๐Ÿ˜‰

This past Thursday the big famous Idaho-potato-on-a-truck came and visited our very own little town, and met our famous Big Egg (because we are the ‘Egg Basket of the Midwest’) ๐Ÿ˜€ ย Somebody said we just needed a Big Bacon to complete it ๐Ÿ˜€

 

We didn’t know it was supposed to be there until early Thursday morning when Cassia and I went to get the kids that we babysit now (we need to update you on that, too, with lots of adorable pictures of all the fun times we’ve had with four extra kids lately!). ย Their dad told us about it, so we decided we had to go see.

[ Leah, Isaiah, Jessica, Campbell, Susannah, Charissa, Graham, Bekah, Cassia and Noah…Anna was taking our picture ๐Ÿ™‚ ]

Swarms of school kids were coming to see the Idaho Potato, too, including Benton’s class (the oldest of the kids we babysit), so we got to see him and get a picture with him ๐Ÿ˜€

[Campbell, Graham, Isaiah, Noah and Benton]

I think all of Mentone came out to see the potato ๐Ÿ˜€ ย  And no, that is not the whole town population below, it’s slightly bigger than that ๐Ÿ˜‰

ย And of course, we had to get a picture of usย withย the Big Egg,ย withย the Big Potato ๐Ÿ˜€

And be on the lookout for more posts and pictures ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย We’re working on a big long post about our latest trip to Connecticut that we went on this month ๐Ÿ˜€

      Hehe, Hope! No, definitely not real ๐Ÿ˜€ They said if it was real, it would take 10,000 years to grow ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜€ Wish you could have seen it!

    lol! We have a few “big” things here too (sheep, prawn, banana, mosquito etc.), but they are rather sedentary!
