Hop Hop!

What does the bunny say? You got it- - - Hop, Hop! That was what Stephani would tell us when she was very little and we would ask her how the different animals would talk!

This picture is Leah, 13 1/2 years old; Stephani, 8 1/2 years old; and Jessica almost 2. I think I'm close in the ages!!!!!!
Always loved this picture. The girls always liked to play in the hay mow after hay and straw were put up, so one fall, we took pictures there. This must be fall of 1980.

Leah loved her rabbits. The girls used to have little dog collars on them and lead them around the front yard and even have them inside for treats; on the kitchen floor in front of the refrigerator! The girls would even have them on the couch and watch tv with them. The bunnies were very good pets for the kids.

Always the entrepreneur, Leah would make a little money with her rabbits. She would sell the babies to a couple of the area resorts, and they would have them for their petting zoo area for the guests staying at the resort.

Such cute kids...
Hearts as big as mountains, they loved all the animals.
Stephani and her breathy "hop, hop, hop" that is surely what a rabbit says.
Doesn't see that long ago...
(Tell me how many parents would allow rabbits inside...)Steve and you were great, great parents and it shows in your kids!
