visit to the farm.

My kids are no strangers to the farm.  They have grown up enjoying, playing, and most recently, helping on farms since they were born.  Whether it's Papa's, Grandpa-Great's, Uncle's, or friends, they are very familiar to spending time there.

One thing they truly LOVE, though, is when they get to bring their friends there, and share with them all of their knowledge on the animals and equipment.  They are in their element, and they joy is evident from their smiling faces.

Our friends from our cabin stopped over last week and picked us up for a quick visit to Papa's farm to take in all the sights.
Eli and Blackie are great friends at the farm.

He always needs to have a piece of 'farmer grass' hanging from his mouth- just like Papa!

My little no-fear-having girl think the higher, the better!

Love these 'cheesy' smiles!

Nadia and Noah enjoyed all the sights and animals, and Nadia and Blackie became quick friends!

Have you ever seen a tree like this!?!?  They are growing together!

I'm so glad my kids have the opportunities for these experiences just like I did when I was little.  Some of my greatest memories from childhood are from spending so much time at my Grandpa's farm, (Eli and Adi still get to share those same experiences at Grandpa-Great's farm quite regularly).  I'm so glad we have these wonderful opportunities right down the road in all directions.  Hopefully these memories will stay with them forever!

That tree is awesome! Did you know it's a dream of mine to live on a farm? Mostly a hobby farm with chickens and such, but something about the country and those rolling hills just slays me.

You have got to frame the farmer grass photo! LOVE it! That's so special that Eli and Adi can hang out on the farm and have some of the same memories you did as a child. They will always remember it!

Thanks so much for always stopping by my blog and leaving sweet comments. It's bright spot in my day :)

Hope you are enjoying summer. We are!
