I received a call from a friend, Lisa Goodson, we met when we both lived in Venice, FL. She and her family moved to South Carolina shortly after their youngest child was born (about 6 years ago). When we moved to North Carolina we realized we only live about an hour from them. While they are busy trying to relocate to FL again, other friends of ours, Cassandra MacDonald came for an impromptu visit. So, we all got together for a picnic and fun afternoon at the Carl Sandburg Farm.
Between the three of us we have 9 children - 3 each and we are all done! But we love the bunch we have.Left: Andy Goodson, Nathan Beadle, Audrey Beadle, Brook MacDonald, Tyler MacDonald, Elysse Beadle, Conner MacDonald, Key Goodson, Natalie Goodson.
This goat really thought the grass was greener on the other side.
Audrey in the action.
Elysse spent a lot of time chasing goats.
Checking out the chickens. Chickens don't really like to eat grass - in case you were wondering.
Wondering how to capture the tadpoles from the slimy old fountain.
It was a wonderful time and we were so glad to see everyone. We made some wonderful life-long friends in Venice.
