Early Autumn on the Farm
My daughter brought our two granddaughters out to the farm the other day and Grandpa had his riding mower out and asked the 2 year old if she wanted a ride (don't worry, the mower part wasn't running, it was safe). She's VERY game for anything and wanted to go - he took her around the circle drive at least ten times and she was steering.. it was sooo funny!
Here is a photo of the two of them, almost 6 year old J and our barn that DH built and just re-painted in the color I wanted. :-)
Someday we want to re-fence the pasture and get some ponies and goats for the grandkids to have fun with. We used to raise registered Nubian dairy goats and at one time had 16 baby "kids"! The children showed them at the county fair and each milked their own goats.
I hope your Autumn is going well.. the leaves are just starting to turn here, the vine maples are the first to turn. Our huge Pin Oak turns brilliant red! In fact, it's the Pin Oak in my graphic on the top of the page.
We're off to run some errands... hugs to you all!
