Gannon and Carver had their well child checks last week. Gannon has ANOTHER ear infection. He was so fussy on the way home. We were driving by the farm, Craig was almost off of work, I decided to make a pit stop and I’m so glad we did! I got some really awesome pictures.
These pictures were taken about 2 seconds apart from each other.
I got some super cute pictures of the boys checking on the cattle.
I love stopping at the farm. I grew up on this farm from the time I was three. These pens, this barn, these sheds all held the same excitement for me as they do for my children now.
I can remember chasing cattle in the middle of the night. I can remember helping dad move cattle between gates/sheds. I can remember when I accidentally wore crocs in 6 inches of manure and dad making fun of me.
I can remember having to sit on the milk cart when I was naughty and milk cows with dad. I can remember playing in the cotton seed. I can remember when my sister was teaching me how to play catch during calf chores with the milk bottles and it gave me a black eye.
I can remember getting the lawn mower stuck and my dad coming over and literally lifting it out of the mud to drier ground. I can remember bringing treats out to the office and blueberry muffins in the summer. I can remember when that old apple tree got struck by lightning just feet away from our living room window where I was sitting. I can remember the old machine shed and the nursery that were here before the new pens were built.
Not only do I get to make memories with my boys on this farm, but I have so many of my own to share with Craig and the boys.
