On the farm

My grandparents’ farm is a little slice of heaven. Complete with astonishing views of rolling hills, a menagerie of animals, a red barn and a living room so cozy I almost always fall asleep on the couch.

Not to mention my Nana, who names the animals after the kids and sings The Twelve Days of Christmas with her own special flair.

For our family, the farm is …

being so happy you just can’t help running with your arms up in the air
catching up with family over a glass of sweet tea or a plate of barbecue
riding a big green tractor

rolling in the grass
talking to the burros
gathering on the porch

feeding the goats
hanging out with cousins
eating until your pants pop
playing bocci on the lawn
breathing fresh, crisp air

picking grapes, raspberries, blackberries
rocking back and forth and back and forth
listening to the animals talk to each other

smiling
laughing
relaxing

For us, the farm is love.

(Hurricane Irene kept Marc at work during our most recent visit to the farm. How we missed him!)

  1. This reminds me so much of my parent’s farm. There really is nothing like taking children to a farm. So much to play with, learn from, and experience! Great pictures of your trip!

    • So true! It’s one of Lily’s favorite places. And I can’t wait for Sophie to get bigger and be able to take it all in.

  2. Oh my God, your children are so gorgeous it takes my breath away. Your whole family, really. What a great place to escape to.

    • Thanks, Suzanne! Your compliment just totally made my day.
