We went to Ellenboro to visit Travis’ family in mid-July. His mom was hosting her annual July get-together with the family and thus, we were invited. 🙂 Sam had SO MUCH FUN on this trip.

Mrs. Gail got an inflatable pool for the kids to play in during the party. Travis inflated it Friday night after we got there and Sam decided that his inflatable toddler bed (greatest thing EVER, btw) needed to go inside and so he slept IN the pool Friday night.

Obviously, after the party on Saturday, he couldn’t sleep in it again. Thankfully, he didn’t mind so much. 🙂

That first night we were there, one of the seven pregnant cows gave birth. Sam got to see it early that morning. I never saw it until that night. Travis was able to get fairly close (with the aid of my telephoto lens) and get pictures of the newest addition to the Wright family.) I don’t know if Sam’s name is the baby’s official name but he calls him “baby moo.” HA!

At one point, the baby ended up on the other side of the fence from his mom.

However, it didn’t seem to bother him as he ran along side of her.

During the party, Sam had a blast playing in the pool with his cousins. I brought Sam’s fishing pole and fish and so they all took turns playing with that and Sam’s Dora ball.

Even Sam’s Uncle Trey, got in on the fishing for a bit!

Sam kept trying to sit on the Dora ball while in the water. He had seen Travis do that with another ball at a friend’s pool and thought it was hilarious.

Some other family played ladderball…

Then others just sat around in the shade (IT WAS HOT!!!) and chatted- or watched the others playing cornhole and ladder ball.

After the party, Travis helped his dad fix part of the pasture fence.

Sam also got back in the pool and played by himself.

After playing in the pool, his Mum Gail gave him a bath and bundled him up in a towel.

The next day, before we left, Travis and Sam rode on the lawn mower. He will NOT ride on the lawn mower with anyone other than his daddy. He had fun!

I also made a video of them driving around. Sorry- I still can’t video and walk at the same time.

Finally, on the way home he figured out a great way to hold his “iBay” (aka my old iPod)…
