Day One of my NJ trip

Hi Everyone! I finally got all my NJ trip pictures downloaded from my camera. I will share Day One with you.

Why are they always working on the roads in Pennsylvania and NJ? Well here they are working on the roads in Warren County, NJ.

I love this Christmas tree farm in Warren County, NJ. Everyone thinks NJ is like Newark or Jersey City, well where I grew up it looked like this!

There are some beautiful old barns in both Warren and Sussex County, NJ. Here are a few Megan and I passed.

Sussex County has alot of really rich soil, so the farming is great! This field is all plowed and ready to go!

Megan and I knew we only had about 30 mins. to go to get to my parents house once we hit the Welcome to Sussex County sign! YAY-12 hours in the car was definitely long enough!!

We were greeted by the lovely cows in this field! The grass is so green and lush. What a beautiful sight to behold!

Here is Mom and Dad's driveway! It was so good to be driving up to the house-we had enough of the car!

This is what you see when you look down the lower part of Mom and Dad's driveway.

This is a small section of Mom and Dad's backyard. Wouldn't you like to wake up to this every day! We would eat breakfast and look out at this!

This was another view of Mom and Dad's backyard. You can see part of my Mom's flower garden. Not much was blooming because it has been so cold up there.

Well that is it for now. Tomorrow I'll post the pics of my Dad's infamous Fordson Tractor and a little town called Lafayette, NJ. Hope you enjoyed the first day!

Sherri, if you hadn't labeled these pics as NJ I would've sworn they were WI. Very similar rural landscapes. And we have road construction all the time - even in winter. Nice pics!

How gorgeous. I love the barns especially the first one. Your parents look like they live in a very beautiful and relaxing place. Thanks so much for sharing all of these pictures. That's one thing I love about your blog- all the amazing pics you take!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
