A Quick Visit to the Farm
Some friends from church have been urging us to come over and check out their small family farm. So one morning last week, when we heard that some chicks had very recently hatched, we got our little butts in gear and headed out there. Daddy took a few minutes off of work and met us there since its just down the road from his brother's barn where he works every day. The sun was bright and very hot already at 9:30 in the morning but we had fun traipsing around in the dirt and mud chasing chicks and other animals.
^^A week later and Lily still talks about the chicks and how they "love" her.^^
^^Reuben wasn't too enthusiastic about any of the animals. That could have been because it was his nap time.^^
^^Well hello there!^^
Visiting the farm further solidified my dream to have my own farm one day in the not so distant future. I can totally see myself getting up early to gather eggs and feed the animals (stop laughing Andrew...). And a garden...I absolutely want a large garden where I can grow strawberries, broccoli, squash, zucchini and other fruits and vegetables that my family love. Lily already enjoys watering the few pots of plants we're growing here in town. I know they both would love having animals around all the time and lots and lots of fruits and veggies to pick. Someday I hope...someday.
