We had a great time spending the day together on the 15th. Earl ran in a 10k in Folsom with some friends early in the morning (Ron, Earl, Cameron (aka Bishop), & Rebecca). The kids and I met him there... it was already so hot, and the course was really hilly, but they all did a great job! Way to go Earl!
No, the kids didn't sprout feathers overnight... these are the wild turkeys that like to run around outside Earl's office. We stopped there after the race and the kids had a great time chasing them down to get a few pictures.
After lunch we went to Earl's friend and coworker, Brenda's house in Lincoln. She breeds and raising racing horses and has almost 20 right now. We learned so much about them, the care she gives them, their names (didn't know horses could have so many names!)... they are amazing animals. And they all have such distinct personalities. Here is Jill meeting one of the horses. She got a little spooked when the horse started sniffing her and checking her out. It was fun! The only problem was Jonathan... the poor guy couldn't stop rubbing his eyes. He was miserable... don't know if it was the horses, the hay on the farm. He was glad to leave!
