What do you think? Pretty nice, huh? The boys sure think so!
|The front yard is so big, the boys are just tiny dots!|
Here they are guarding the front gate:
|It's going to be a BIG job keeping the front and back forty safe from intruders! All eyes are peeled!|
|Camouflaged for stealthier sentry duty!|
|The mailman won't make it past this spot......|
Yesterday, being President's Day, meant I had the day off from work. I wanted to walk the boys someplace new, and have some good photo-ops. It was a beautiful, warmish day, so we headed out to Morven Park just outside of Leesburg, Va, and only a short drive away. The house was the home of a wealthy former Virginia governor and is now a National Register Historic Property. It sits on about a 1000 acres of land, and is a combination of historic buildings and an equestrian center. The land is used for steeplechase events and has large horse jumps scattered throughout the fields. I've even come to the park for an outdoor agility trial a couple of times.
I have a couple more pictures to share from our day, but I'd best save them. Blog fodder is always at a premium so I had better spread them out just a bit ;-)
