farm life

oh how i miss farm life.
running free.
the open fields. the mud. the gravel roads.
the birds singing all day. the huge garden.
the puddles to jump in. digging for worms.
the quietness.
and of course my mom and dad.

the kids and i packed up and went to the farm this past thursday.
we never head to the farm in the summer b.c we always see my parents @ their cabin but they were not there this weekend. drew was leaving for a long golf trip in western ND and we get o see my gramma gi gi too! i am so glad we did. except for the sleeping... it was perfect!
dillon was so HAPPY!!!! he got to hunt for works. play in the garden. in the mud. have a water fight with papa.
he would have played in the rocks with papa's trucks and in the mud all day long! i love letting him just be a little boy. we get dirty here of course but no real MUD puddles on our cement driveway!!! i sure miss having all of that room to run too!
i would not go back to where i drew first lived (on a farm) for many reasons but for the open spaces... in a heart beat!
we went to the 125th anniversary celebration in a small town by where i grew up. so fun. jumping castles. a great parade which papa was the legionnaire carrying the flag @ the front.
fish races. and many more games.
we also attended a family reunion on Sunday.
and sunday we got to spend some time with betsy and hayden while we waited for the boys to get home from their golfing trip.
the BOYS had so much fun on their trip.
they saw 3 beautiful golf courses and lost lots of golf balls!

so we are back home.
rain most of the day yesterday. summer has not even started yet.

preslee got another tooth. so now she has both bottom teeth! so last night was a long one around here. not even sure if that is what is bothering her. but not sleeping well poor thing!

EIEIO and on his farm he had a "four wheeler"
.."tractor" and
then finally he decided "PIG"
i was not expecting to hear 4 wheeler when we were singing but... it works i guess.
and it was what his papa and grandpa have so he is right!!!

my baby girl turned 11 months old today!
really.... where has time gone?
she still is my little non mobile girl. so funny to see how content she is really just to hang out.
what more can i ask for though?!?!?! nothing.
she can scoot a little but chooses not to most of the time!
smiling. talking. laughing. playing. snuggling. is what she loves.
i love you baby girl!
i really know have to plan a 1st birthday party. i am a little sad about that. but excited to watch her grow! xoxoxoxoox

just got the three little babes to bed. my sisters youngest chase is staying with us. we met in the middle from mnpls and here today and did a switch. dillon and chase have been playing like crazy tonight!!!! can not wait for them to start again in the am!
excited to have some time with him. and soon we will have another NEPHEW!!! we are so excited for them. a family of 6! xoxoxoxox

i better get cleaning up so we can make a mess again tomorrow!
