Walk & Hollow tree | part 2

I don't know how many times I've had to type out this post . . . . once I did and someone closed down the page without saving it, then the computer restarted and I didn't have it saved. Then the picture hosting website wasn't working . . . ugh. Anyways, I hope this is the final time I will have to write out this post.

This is like my favorite shot to get on our loonngg driveway.

Yes, that's me throwing a snowball at my sister. *cough* I'm so nice, aren't I? She did put snow down my sweater when I was trying to take the first picture . . .

Nehemiah in the stroller. Every time I say, "Nehemiah, you're so cute." He says, "Cookie!" I guess he thinks I'll give him a cookie or something.

Later that beautiful afternoon we went to the pond.

I really like this little spring house. It's perfect for pictures!

Of course I couldn't resist taking a few pictures of the frozen pond. ;)

The next day {it was a drearier day} Anna and I decided to go for a hike and take some pictures of the hollow tree Samuel had found {he saw it first, so he claims it's his}

In case you're wondering where we are, it's in the cornfield behind the pond. Of course there aren't cornfields in the wintertime. I don't think I'm big on cornfields . . . I've gotten lost in one before. I was by myself & barefooted. And I was lost for a while. Not fun.

Anna looks like somebody from Little House on the Prairie or something . . .

See the trees way down there? That's where the huge hollow tree is.

We finally crossed the forever ending cornfield, got down to the creek, and reached the tree! =D

I decided to get some pictures inside of the hollow tree so you can actually see how big it is. I had to use the flash {not my favorite} but here you go:

It looks a lot bigger than that in real life...all four of my brothers, sister, and I can fit in it. Probably five people can fit inside.

Well, there's the end of our Hollow Tree Adventure. We've already hidden from evil dwarfs inside of it and pretended to be pioneers. ;) Who knows what we'll use it for next time?

Oh, and we're still sick. Thank you all for the birthday wishes, and all the comments on Anna's blog made her day!

Psalm 30:4 ~ Sing to the LORD, you His faithful ones, and praise Him for His holy name.

  5. Kendra,

    We live near A TON of corn fields. And sometimes when we are driving by I'll say, "Look more CORN!"
