I feel random today. Let’s roll with it.
We are one big animal loving family. My dreamer of a husband and I always say someday we’ll have a farm. Who knows if that will ever happen. Although we came close with four kids and two pets. We like to go visit my friend’s farm in Georgia whenever we get the chance. To me, farms mean fun because there’s no wearing make-up (okay, maybe some lipgloss) and no modern day things such as typing on computers or texting. Just real, enriching togetherness while hangin’ with happy creatures and our brood.
It’s true. I like chickens. Especially ones with fancy poofs on their head.
So do our kids…
Who am I kidding, they prefer the bunnies….
Or the chicken eggs.
My husband likes chickens too. Well, not really, getting this picture was like pulling teeth. But he smiled anyway.
He didn’t seem to mind the baby pig.
Although the pig is a little rowdy on a leash.
It’s amazing to watch kids care for animals. I think it’s a good thing…builds compassion.
Being together like this allows opportunities to help each other out and enjoy time together in a simple, true way. Good stuff.
I know a lot of you will ask where we took these fun pics. We were at my friend’s crazy awesome farm in Georgia. She is a talented graphic artist who became a farmer/art teacher years ago. She has a big red barn right smack in the middle of her farm where she teaches art to the kids during their visit. All of her animals are happy and a little bit spoiled (in a good way). And they are all great with kids. So is she. It’s a great place to go have an unforgettable time. Or a great place to have your child’s birthday party or go to day camp in the summer. If you’re interested in learning more about her, email me and I’ll get you in touch!
