The Popcorn Lady at Rural King...

Dear Friends,
Yesterday was day nine (of the ten), and I had all four children to myself...alone...YIKES!

Luckily for me, the boys are older (8 and 11), and they took over a lot of the work including the hauling in and out of the cars, seat belts..well all of that!

We played outside most of the day raking leaves from one location and then piling them up in another so that they could do some jumping.

We also took our field trip to Rural King, our favorite store. As we pulled into the parking lot, we notice hundreds of seagulls circling around a car. We stopped to watch and I jumped out of the car to take a video. I talked to the man and woman afterwards, and they told me their favorite hobby was to come to Rural King, buy a giant bag of popcorn for $1 and feed it to the seagulls.

It was very reminiscent of Ocracoke, except there are no tractors on sale there!

We spent the rest of the afternoon looking at deer heads, camouflage easy chairs and live bunnies.

Yes, all in all, what a great day in northern Indiana. Enjoy this one video clip of our own seagulls! More videos to follow from our exciting day!

As always, thanks for reading and watching!
