The View from the Roof

I’m back! ๐Ÿ˜€ We just got back from our vacation and it feels so good to be home. (And now I can blog again, hehe.) We had many fun times and some rather not so fun times, but I haven’t sorted all my pictures yet, so a vacation post will have to wait.

Until then, thisย Life on the Farm post should hold you over.ย ๐Ÿ˜›

Before our vacation our friends came over and we traipsed around on a big barn roof with them. It was lots of fun! The view was great from up there. There’s also this one shiny part of the roof that’s good for sliding on, so we did that a lot, then for some reason everyone started yodeling at the cows (don’t ask me why!). We played some board games on the roof as the sun set, then made the slightly scary descent down and went back home. *Happy sigh* Fun times.

The view from the roof:

The clouds were really neat that day.
Isn’t that beautiful? The corn is so lushย – it’s way taller now than when I took this picture.


Ahem. Sorry about the intruding manure pit on the right. XD



Roof sliding:



Yodeling at the cows…


And now for the silhouettes, which I edited with PicMonkey for maximum silhouette-ness.


I love these next two of my sister!


ย I love this one too!



And this next one has to be my absolute favorite. Thank you, friends and siblings for cooperating with me on this one. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I might even enter it in the fair! What do you think?


Which picture was your favorite? Does climbing on barn roofs sound fun to you or not?


P. S. Oh. My. Goodness. I HAVE 626 FOLLOWERS. SQUEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! I’mย soย happpppyyyyyyyy! That is like… impossible. Right? Yes it is…ย no it isn’t! Oh myย goodness I can’t even believe it! I wouldn’t have nearly this many if my fairy house post hadn’t beenย featured on Discover, but it was, and I am so thankful. I’m SUPER astounded that this even happened! I mean, why choose me out of so many wonderful bloggers?ย Thank you, Lord, for giving me thisย wonderful, exciting opportunity, and help me to use it to your glory. โ™ฅ

P. P. S. Okay, this may be a little anti-climatic after all that, but Loren, it’s your turn for WordCrafters. I simplyย cannot wait to read the chapter you cook up – I know it’s gonna be great!

  2. WOW ALLISON!!!!!!! Those are amazing pictures! 626 followers is no small feat! I love your blog!
    I like the last two pics best. ๐Ÿ’›

    I just made my hundredth post on Buzz About AG! It’s not really what I expected it to be, though.


  3. Yay–you’re back!! I was gonna sup ride you with a note in your mailbox when you got home… But I guess I took too long :(. But I can imagine how grateful you are to be home! And man are those pictures GORGEOUS!! And you should totally enter that one in the fair–and if it doesn’t win I’ll be very confused, cause thats totally first-place worthy :D.


    1. Aww, thank you for the welcome, Hayley! ๐Ÿ˜€ (Even without the note. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )
      Yes, I am so happy to be home – but give me a few days and I probably won’t be as happy. XD
      Aww, thank you super much, Hayley! That means a lot because you’re a really good photographer yourself! โ™ฅ

  4. Looks like SO much fun!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I climb on our house roof sometimes, and my brother goes on our big tank and the garage roof. ๐Ÿ˜‰ You should totally enter it in the fair! I really liked the last one and the silhouette of your sister jumping.


    1. I know, right?! ๐Ÿ˜€ Yeah, roof climbing IS fun.
      Aww, thanks! Me too! The only reason why I couldn’t enter it in the fair would be if the editing restrictions were too tight. :/ But anyway, I hope I can find a way to enter it!

  5. That looks so fun! Was it scary at all? Oh, you should TOTALLY enter that picture in the fair.
    Congrats for the followers! You definitely deserve all those and more.


    1. It was a teensy bit scary I guess, but not really because the roof is really big and not very steep. I love climbing trees and barn roofs and looking out at the world. ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. Yay, you’re back! ๐Ÿ˜€ And CONGRATULATIONS for 626 followers!! That is amazing! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Oh, and yes, that last photo is really cool-you should totally enter it into the fair! ๐Ÿ™‚

    P.S. I’d love to go climbing on a roof like that! ๐Ÿ˜€


    1. It was! Yep! ๐Ÿ˜€
      Thank you! I was SO amazed! Well, I got about 500 followers because one of my posts was featured on WordPress Discover, and a lot of people discovered my blog from that. Aww, that’s okay! For a long time I hardly got any followers. Keep it up!
