Day one visiting the farm.

My sister Allie, two nieces Rowan and Lydia, and Allie's boyfriend Adam arrived about 1 am this morning. The kids only let us all sleep until about 6, thank you Amazon Fire magic box or playing Zootopia and buying us another hour.

It started out dreary and drizzling, so our first little tour of the farm and meeting the critters was quick.


Awww cousins, Hayden and Rowan wub them!
The goats were a big hit, especially that Heidi...so glad we decided to keep her, I just love that little goat.
And she seems to love kids too. Meeting baby Lydia.

Snails are cool too I guess. Hayden loves them...I almost would love to find her one of those giant ones to be her pet LOL.

Goats, snails and chickens OH MY! Hahaha.

Just after lunch Scott, Amber and cousin Hailee joined us...as did the SUN, say what?! Time to hit the farm again, sans umbrellas.

More baby goat fun.

Hailee loves Heidi too.

Momma's Taboo and Yahtzee checked out this new baby.

Dolly got caught in a Jericho hug.

Feeding the piggies some bread.


Mulan, Lydia...Lydia, Mulan.

Horses, Horses, Horses...everyone wanted to meet the horses.




Yummy grass treats.

Ava and Scooter did pretty good.

The fence didn't hold the kids long, they wanted more.

The horses didn't mind the horde of children running up on them, thankfully.


If Lydia becomes horse crazy....I think I can pinpoint the beginning. Awww!

It was hard for Hayden to share, but Hailee got to walk Scooter around a bit.



Everyone got a little lead around. Some where more comfortable than others LOL.





Finished the day off with some kick ball...and catch ball fun....and some trampoline time.

Big fun...Auntie Amber launching balls up to Xander, Hayden and Hailee to try to catch.













What a wonderful day...and the weather actually cooperated today. Can't wait for tomorrow!

Rock it.

My sister and nieces are coming for a long weekend visit from Colorado this coming Friday...EEKKK can't wait! Too bad it wasn't this last weekend...we had days and days of 80 degrees and sun, and of course this weekend is supposed to rain and rain. Jericho and I did some shopping to stock the house. Most of my unloading helpers were at school so Jericho was supposed to help. Instead he grabbed my phone and started working on his paparazzi skills. At least he takes flattering pictures....sometimes






































He was pressing the button like crazy, I had a lot of crap to delete LOL....but I just went with it.





































I had to stop rocking it when I got photobombed by a chicken LOL.





































My cutie patootie.





































Then he took a pic for me, had to try on a new dress. I almost never wear dresses, I feel like they are unflattering on me....which makes me feel really self conscious. My boys are so sweet, they pay the best compliments ever...their wives are going to be very lucky, and well flattered. They made me feel like it looked pretty good!






































A couple pics I forgot to share from the bike ride (training wheel-less for Xan and Haddie) with Grandma and Jason the other day.

My cautious Lily Bug, still rocking those training wheels.

Speaking of Lily...got a funny for you. Lily is not an outdoorsy kid. Today she actually came out with me and Hayden to put Ava and Scooter in the barn for the night. Let me set the scene....The mosquitos and flies are already buggin...and there is stinging nettle everywhere. The girls got to talking.... Lily: Are we almost done with this itchy country stuff. I don't know why we moved to this place. Hayden: It was moms dream. Lily: Well I hate this. Hayden: Hey I love moms dream. Lily: Why couldn't she have a less itchy dream? Why didn't we move to a less itchy forest? All I could do was laugh...my poor Bug.
