Wonderful photos and memories here!

My best friend and I have been this close for almost 40 years. We blog together and email,IM,etc. everyday.
That's my favorite friend story!

Lovely post today.

Marilyn said...

Great pictures. My favorite thing to do with my best friend is email. We live far apart now but have that special bond that not every one is lucky enough to have.

Diana...aka...MeMe said...

We must jump on the beds at every hotel we stay at... love the parting shot, and the animal pictures too! Great storytelling!

antoinette marie said...

my best friend and i love to just chill next to her little pool while the kids have at it! i've gotten a great tan this year just hanging at her house doing it!

the last farm pic is completely amazing! really love the hotel pic too! great post! haven't seen you lately around mine, hint, hint, lol! blessings...

Melinda said...

Your "goodnight" photo is gorgeous! I love the sun coming in through the barn doors!!

As for what my friends and I enjoy doing together - probably shop, although that is not something I enjoy on my own...weird : )

Trudy said...

Great pictures...love the tighty whitey pic, how fun!

My bff and I love to do the girl thing and shop and do lunch or dinner. Which is ironic, because while I love to eat...I don't care for the shopping. I guess it's made easier when it's with someone we love so much!

April said...

I adore your header AND, I, of course, love all your pictures! Make me grin from ear to ear! I just love to sit and talk with my best friends. We don't have to do anything "special" to have fun. Just be there.

You captured more than images here... you captured memories for EVERYONE! I had forgotten all about the adorable animals at the County Fair that I went to as a kid (I'm now a grandma!), and jumping on the bed at my Nana's house with my brothers and cousins! I remember getting into trouble on one of those days because my brother tossed his stuffed animal too high and it got stuck inside the light fixture. Smoke. Fire. TROUBLE! Oh, my Nana was trying so hard for our parents to NOT punish us. I won't be jumping on the bed with my brothers and cousins anymore (we're too old and don't want to be seen in tighty whiteys together!), but I will be visiting animal friends and jumping as high as I can manage with my grandchildren... thanks to you and this Capture and Beth!! Perfection!! And what do I love doing with my best friend?... breakfast, a cup of coffee and talking the morning away. My best friend and I taught at the same high school for 30 years and we've been best friends from the first moment. We've shared experiences with our own kids, with students and now grandchildren!

Saj said...

Great shots! I love the jumping on the beds shot-you can see the fun on his face!

Kathleen said...

Oh, I love all the animal shots. And the sun shot. And look at the expression on your sweetie's face in the bumper car! He's not having any fun, is he? Love the jumping in the bed action shot too!

Donna Maria said...

Fantastic shots...They look like they had so much fun! Xx

Alicia said...

Oh my gosh, I love the one of them walking out of the barn!!

And LOLOLOLOL at the two of them in their undies!

He & Me + 3 said...

That was hysterical. You are such a fun mom. I am sure Kaishon and Stunt Man would get along great...but since you are used to all the excitement, lets have the play date at your place:)

Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

mamamia said...

i loved the back lit shot, that was incredible! and the whitey tighty shot was too fun! great job! Can I be as awesome as you when I grow up? I really want to be!

Marrdy said...

I love the tighty whitey shot! And don't goats have the softest ears?!

drewmark19 said...

So what you're saying is that my two boys aren't going to outgrow the underwear only phase?

drewmark19 said...

Oh, and to answer your question...my sisters are my best friends. Our "fun" is shopping together at Walmart and going to garage sales. We are one exciting bunch!

septembermom said...

So much fun! You take the best photos. My boys love those underwear battles too!

Baloney said...

They're gonna hate you for that undies shot!! :)
Too cute.

Kelly said...

What fun!

RR Mama said...

They are so going to kill you for the last picture! Great shots my friend.

richies said...

Great photos. The one of the goat is great. When I was a kid we raised goats (no pun intended).

Mel Fraase said...

LOVE the pics... especially the one of the kids in the sunlight - beautiful. And I'm sure the boys will appreciate the jumping-on-the-bed-in-underwear shot later! HAHA!!

Mel Fraase said...

Oh, and my BFF and I LOVE to make smoothies and watch the chick flicks our husbands won't watch. We only get to see eachother maybe once a month!

Fresh Mommy said...

Hahaha, what a great time... and they really are having a blast on those beds!! Looks like fun to me too :)

And I just love that sunlight shot!!!

:)

Karen Deborah said...

great shots. Who replaces the mattresses? Once the kids jumped on a bed of mine and literally broke all the springs in it, totally trashed. How about a trampoline? Ya'll should have one of those for those jumpin jacks with flash!

Muthering Heights and Other Senseless Sensibility said...

It looks like you had a great time!

I like the new look around here!

Becca said...

Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comment. Such great pictures! I especially LOVE the one in the tighty whities ha!

Larissa said...

this sounded like a ton of fun! absolutely love the picture in the horse stalls with the sunlight!

thanks for the SITS hi! *waves*

Prairie Lady said...

That bed jumping one cracked me up.

Mental P Mama said...

What is more fun than jumping on the beds in your underwear??? Life doesn't get any better;)

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Oh. My. Gosh! The shot of the boys absolutely cracked me up! You have to be the coolest--I am constantly yelling at the ceiling "Stop jumping on the bed!"

Sneaky Momma said...

What fun!!!!! I'm sure your little boy loves the fact that there is a pic of him on your blog in his undies!
This is the first time I've seen your new look. It's perfect!

Julie said...

love the picture of the pig and the boys jumping in their undies! Awesome

Josh, Steph, The Boys and Maddie said...

Oh my gosh! The boys in their tighty whiteys! I just cracked up laughing! Those are the memories!

I love the picture of the pig! What kind of camera do you have? I love one step photo editing too. That is why I love the software. It is a little pricey but still cheaper then buying each filter individually for your camera.

Dan said...

I had a report of your attendance at the fair from the pig underground. Haven't you noticed that all pigs are really part of a big underground spy movement? {*grin*}

Can't say my best friend and I ever jumped on beds (we were both over 6 feet tall and 200lbs+ by sixth grade, which might explain it).

We did things like load up our packs and hike across the wheat fields and grasslands. We'd hike until we came to the first tree, then camp for the night. Sometimes it was 20 miles or more before we hit a tree. I miss those hikes as we walked and talked and dreamed.

Now we tend to sit and talk when we see each other (He lives ~1000 miles away now). Sitting and talking just isn't quite the same, but neither of us are as pain free as we were when we were young either. {*grin*}

Veronica said...

Had to check out this post since you mentioned you talked about goats here on your blog! My fav pic was the one with the momma cow and her calf. So cute!

Amy said...

Wonderful shots! What fun! :)

Dcan said...

Great friend shots, the fair looks so fun! What is it about jumping on hotel beds - my kids love to do it too.

Darlene said...

It looks like a FABULOUS time at the fair!!!

sunnyme said...

The one before the last one is amazing wonderful shot.

I love to sing and do silly stuff with my best friends, like dancing around in the kitchen getting ready for a night out!

Liz said...

Beautiful pictures! I love all of the animal shots. Glad that you guys had a good time at the fair. I love my BFF but I don't think we'll jump on the bed together in our underwear...LOL!
