A Day At The Lake...

We decided to take a day off and go to the lake, before it gets too cold.  It ended up being a beautiful day, and the kids had a great time.  Just some pictures of them having fun.

Been on the farm too long...

So, today I take Ryan to the dr.s office as a follow up to his pneumonia E.R. trip to the hospital the other night. As we are waiting for our appointment, I notice there is a medical skeleton in the hallway of the waiting room. So, thinking I am going to be one heck of an informative mom, I decide to show Ryan the skeleton. Here is the conversation between Ryan and I:

Mom:  See Ryan, this skeleton is just like you on the inside.
Ryan:  (interest taken quickly)...Really?
Mom:  Yes.  Look, here is your chest, where they took the pictures of you the other night.  This is where your pneumonia was.
Ryan:  Oh.  Is dis what my head looks like?  And my back too?
Mom:  Yes.  And here are your arms.  And these are your legs.  Look at the feet.
Ryan:  Mom?  S'cuse me.  I half a question.  Uh...where are duh nuts?

His face looked kinda like this one here.  Very serious.  Definately a question worth asking, right?
Well, needless to say, I have to whisper to him that the skeleton doesn't have those.  These are "bones" that we are looking at.
As we turn around the waiting room, which I might add is a maternity room, so, full of moms with kids and expectant moms...we see this:

And this:

And even this:

Hmmmm....something tells me these people haven't been on a farm.  Something else tells me that I need to have my husband teach my children different terminology.
