Over the weekend, I went to the campground where my Mom & Dad and two brothers each have a seasonal campsite. My oldest brother and I were going to hike through the woods, and look for some good photo spots. Well, I don't know how it happened, but all of the sudden, we were swarmed by children. "Can I go? Can I go?" LOL!! So, we checked with their parents and made sure it was okay for them to go with us, and we all hiked into the woods. We didn't get quite the photos we were expecting, but we had a lot of fun. We were doing head-counts along the way, and the children, for some reason, thought that that was hilarious! :Hahaha: But with that many children along, I didn't want to get back and find that I'd left one under a toadstool or something. grinsmiley But I felt like Maria Von Trapp with all of those children tagging along! :Hahaha: I almost taught them how to sing the "Do Re Mi" song. batEyes

LOL Savannah....sometimes even head counts don't work.....I had 6 brothers and sisters and remember leaving the youngest sister at church one time. Dad had to go back after her. She was still playing with the other kids and never missed us...........:haha:

Funny, Savannah. This reminds me of the scene in The Sound of Music where the kids are afraid of the thunderstorm, so they all crowd onto Maria's bed. After you finish "Grandma's Feather Bed," maybe you can break into a a few verses of "My Favorite Things." ;)
Oh! You could sing a LHOP version of it:
Laura's two apples and Pa Ingall's fiddle,
Caroline's pancakes hot off of the griddle,
Isaiah Edwards so drunk that he sings,
these are my favorite Little House things... :mrgreen:
(Everyone feel free to add a verse!)

[rotfl2] Loving it Rob, now for the next verse..........
Mary's blue eyes and Laura's long braids,
Pencil and slate and getting good grades,
The big school bell as it begins to ring,
these are my favorite Little House things... [dance]

Good one, Rhonda!
Half-Pint surviving the TVLand edits
to run down the hill as they're rolling the credits,
spreading her arms out as if they were wings,
these are my favorite Little House things...

When the crab bites
When those bees sting
When Laura's feeling sad

Original Song......I like ours better!!! [clap]
Artist: Maria Lyrics
Song: My Favorite Things Lyrics
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things
Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things
Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things
When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad
[Repeat all verses]

But one more...
Reverend Alden's preparing a sermon,

Alright, Misti! [clap]
What do you suppose would happen to the milk if Nellie and Moe sang a duet? Cottage cheese? [shocked]

Throw Nancy in there and there would be curdles of milk globs everywhere!
Some non reocurring town members and a green haired Charles Ingalls,
town dances, burned barns and Doc Baker and Doc Marvin's practice shingles,

Warped, Rob. Barney Fife tells me that that is just warped. ;) When you list it all like that, it sure doesn't sound like a wonderful family show, does it! [rotfl]
A brown jug for Edwards, that Grace once was sipping,
Green cans of paint that above doors were dripping,
Wondering who a new virus would bring,
These are my favorite Little House things.......

The quotes I posted were from the old forum before it went crazy on us. I had to dig in there to find it and thought it was worth posting here. Thumbsup

Here's a picture of the opening to the trail we took. Part of the trail, just around the bend, was blocked by a large fallen tree. So we ended up making our own trail, which the children, of course, loved!



And this is the same spot, early in the morning, just as the sun was starting to peak through the trees:

Thank you. Cool The scenery is so pretty there. I'd love to just stay there.......

I was there tonight, getting the wood gathered for a big campfire with my niece and nephews. I ended up doing something really stupid, though. *rolls eyes* Most of the wood I'd been gathering was really old and dried, so it broke really easily. Even the larger pieces. . . . . After a while, I guess I didn't pay attention to how solid the wood felt. I picked up a piece of wood about three or four inches in diameter, and tried to break it across my shin, like I had the other wood............I stretched out my arms, and brought it down full force against my leg, and . . . . . . . well, this piece wasn't like the other wood. It was very fresh and sturdy, and bounced back off my leg without so much as a crack in it's outer shell. My leg didn't fare as well.......I have a large bruise, and a slight limp to prove it. :Hahaha:
