Many Thanks

Many thanks to all who braved the threat of stormy weather to join us at our Open House last Sunday.  The sun came out, Aurora Celtic entertained us with beautiful music, and the pony rides were a huge hit with the kids.  Merry, Pippen and Samwise delighted the crowd as only triplets can.  We had a great time visiting with old friends and making new ones.
We’re so very grateful to all the family members who were huge help in getting ready.  Once again, everything fell together despite all the obstacles.  Thanks, again, everyone!

Open House

Thank you all so much for all the good thoughts and well wishes that you sent our way!   They certainly must have worked because despite threatening clouds and rumbling thunder, only a few sprinkles dared to show up at our open house on Sunday.  We are experiencing some technical difficulties with photographs, but in the meantime we thought you would enjoy these videos of the Cranesville Country Mule Team Wagon Rides.  They were a huge hit.  Thanks, Laura and Rob!!  Many, many thanks to the mules, Buster and Brown!  They worked very hard and were so patient.
(Please be patient with the audio.  We thought about adding music, but the running commentary from our great-neice/granddaughter was just too cute to remove.)
