10 Stumpfs on 16 Wheels

This year we decided to forgo buying our annual zoo pass and put the money toward a trailer for the van. We've enjoyed hauling out bikes all over our county and beyond on 4-H rides and some impromptu tours. Bryan does more than his share of hauling - carrying the three youngest in front and behind. Nothing like an extra 100 pounds when going uphill!

Ready to take on Turkey Run State Park

Hunter tries out the "Kermit" seat. We've since put him in the trailer with Brigitta and put Heidi up front to help stear.

Jacob ditched the training wheels this past weekend.

Cozy quarters in the caboose!


  1. How fun! I love Hunter's kermit seat.

  2. HI Lainie! Wow - 8 beautiful babies! You must have slipped one by me (laugh). Your Mom just sent me your website and blog and I am definetly going to follow you. What a beautiful family! I can't believe that Emelie is 13 years old - it seems like yesterday that we were all at the old homestead and she was just learning to walk. Time certainly flies. I have always admired how organized you are and how calm you are with so many children - you are a great mom.
