LPA Party

We had an awesome time with all our friends in Little People of America.  Lots of old friends and new ones showed up for lots of fun in the pool.  LPA has been a big part of our lives. 

Let Feedom Ring

We enjoyed a gorgeous 4th of July night with about 80 friends & family.  Plenty of good food, fun activities and most of plenty of time to catch up with people.

Some close friends enjoyed a rare wedding here at the farm this weekend.  The weather was perfect and it was quite a celebration to watch two people commit their lives to each other.

The big day:

And the reception party at the barn:

A buddy of mine works for Tractor Supply Company.  From time to time they shoot video around the farm for their web site.  (As a die hard TSC fan, that’s very cool in itself). Recently they brought a drone out and sent me this video


Each winter since we bought the farm, two geese come and make a nest in the same place.  We like to think they are the same geese and we affectionately named them Goosey & Gander.  This year turtles robbed the nest and ate the eggs.  But Goosey made a second nest in a different area and we’ve been patiently waiting for the new arrivals.  Today we saw the first one sneak out from under mother goose.

We recently bought the farm behind our place.  The kids and I decided that our two Belted Galloway cows would enjoy grazing the farm instead of the 2 acre pen they’ve lived in.  The theory:  get a bucket of sweet feed and they’ll follow us to the promised land like Noah loading the ark.  But Bossy & Sweetie were too distracted by the grass to go .  (there’s a sermon in there somewhere)

After plenty of coaxing and encouraging, the cattle drive was on…

And eventually we made it and the sister cows will enjoy plenty of grazing and excercise.
