Tales on the farm

I want to first start off saying that prayers are going out to all the Boston people and the runners in the marathon.

I posted about a giveaway that I teamed up with Ashley yesterday so if you haven't entered you need to! This weekend was a fun weekend. We have spent the entire weekend basically outside. Sunday once we got home from church it was time for Gannon to take a nap. I had Brayden change real quick and we went on a long walk. It was nice to spend some one on one time with him. We talked about anything and everything. There is a small little pond in our neighborhood and we stopped and saw some frogs jumping in and we also saw a little turtle taking a swim.

There is this farm on our route that we walk and the baby cows are so friendly. Brayden and I stopped and started talking to the cows. There was only one near us at the time but once they heard us talking they came running over. The farmer had noticed we were standing talking to his cows and came over and asked if we wanted to help feed his cows. Brayden jumped at that and was in heaven when we got near the cows. We fed the momma cows, which one is expecting a baby any day! We also went over to the chickens and Brayd got the fresh eggs that they just laid. Then we went over and talked to his pig for a few minutes. Pete was so nice he sent home some fresh eggs and sausage with us.

I didn't realize until we got home that the cows we see from our backyard are the ones we went and fed. Brayden has been keeping his eye on them to see if a baby has been born. He can't wait until we take our walk this weekend so we can stop by there again and visit with the animals!


  1. This is totally awesome! I love that you're instilling a love for animals in your children! Such a simple concept but one that many parents don't nurture!
