Picture Tag

I have been tagged by Jen!
I have to list the 6th photo from the 6th folder in my archives.
This was not easy since all my pictures are on 3 flash drives!! Yes I am a picture taking fanatic!
So I went with the first full flash drive and this is a cute but embarrassing picture.
This photo was taken on our 1st trip to my uncles farm. I had not been there in over 13 yrs (divorce...he's my moms sisters ex husband) So anyway. We got back in contact after all those yrs and he wanted to see me and my family. He says I was the daughter he never had, He had 3 boys! I truly loved this man and he taught me everything about farming and what it meant to get up and go to work every morning. He has been dairy farming all of his life.
Thomas was only 19 months old and had no fear of the cows! The funny part is, by the time we left there he had his own cow that we named Hershey. I'll have to show her at a later time and you will understand why we can up with that name.

Besides me and Thomas, that is my husband Mark in the hat and my Uncle Gary.

I would like to point out that I was a bit chubby, ok thats an understatment, but now I can proudly say I am 35 lbs lighter today then when this was taken!!! YAAAA!
I can't believe I put my fat ass on here at all, an I am the one behind the camera all the time, but like Jen said in her post that she couldn't cheat...well neither could I.
