Nothing Unusual About This Family Walk

Just a normal family walk around our property yesterday. Nothing unusual about it whatsoever. Don’t study the pictures too hard to find anything different.

Whew, Hu-Dad is really wearing us out.

Whew, Hu-Dad is really wearing us out.

Hu-Dad is really making sure we are tired. First, we took a really, really long Jeep ride yesterday all the way past Raleigh. That’s over five hours – each way. And then today he kept insisting that we go out for family walks together.

And we do mean lots of family walks.

And we do mean lots of family walks.

Nothing unusual at all about those pictures so far, is there. Nope, nothing.

Uh, Hu-Dad, who is this?

Uh, Hu-Dad, who is this?

    Mom ‘n Ebby say: Ok, new member for the Herd already? At first when we looked at the photos, we thought they were some older ones, but something didn’t quite fit there, either. Welcome to the club — errrrrr, Herd, Landon.
