The end of July/beginning of August was an exciting time for the Hornberger Family.
Jeremy's youngest sister, Sara, was returning home from her LDS Mission in Utah; and with her return, we decided to have a family reunion!
Jeremy has 6 sisters and 1 brother. So it's difficult to have all 8 siblings together, unless someone is getting married.
So, Melissa came in from Calgary; Jody came in from Minnesota and Anna + Michael came in from Florida.
It was quite fun to get together.
One of our many outings led us back to the family home in Cassville. The sweet lady who lives there now let us in to take a look at the house and the property.
Jeremy and Philip sitting in front of one of the many Christmas trees they planted.
The fantastic barn on their old property, with the letter H on it.
I may have fallen in love.
Jeremy had a pitch fork land on his head, that a friend threw from off the barn.
The massive Walnut Tree....
...that Jeremy and a friend used to throw at passing cars.
We went to a Farm on Friday while Jeremy was at a work conference. I felt pretty brave going to a farm with two kids. Thankfully Philip slept in the ergo the whole time.
To say the least, Brooke was in heaven.
We saw ducks, chickens, cows, goats, and geese.
We watched a cow be milked and fed the baby goats bottles of milk five times. She played with the geese and chased them around the farm.
It was the best two hours!
We went the Kansas City Zoo on Saturday and had a blast.
Brooke had so much fun seeing the animals. The Polar Bears and Penguins were her favorite. But she was worried about seeing the Zebras and Giraffes.
It's quite the Zoo.
We even rode on a little train with the kids.
Brooke was all smiles; she even made a new black-and-white friend!
Happy fourth of July.
It's become a tradition, inconsistent albeit, but a tradition nonetheless, to go up to Cassville for a pancake breakfast on July 4th.
It's always fun to go back to where Jeremy grew up, where we played, went to school, went to church, and got into trouble.
The pancake breakfast is put on by his old church that he attended growing up. He's like a celebrity, people get excited to see him and he's always talking to people.
We went by his old house to look at it. We were hoping to go inside, but the owners were not home (their dogs were though!)
We also stopped by the Cassville Museum to look at the old Schoolhouse that used to live on their property. Jeremy talked about how he remembers playing in it and having fun.
We also stopped by to check on Grandma Sally. Brooke picked out some fun flowers for her.
She sweetly informed me that Grandma's favorite color is red.
She probably loved that color, sweet girl.
