A Day at the Farm

Yesterday a co-worker of Adam’s graciously had us out to her farm where they raise grass-fed beef to explore. Mary, her husband Jeff, and their daughter showed us around and let us see the cows with their calves as well as the other pets they have including hermit crabs, miniature hamsters, a gerbil, a rabbit, and a dog.  Sebastian is in the very adorable stage of calling all animals with four legs dogs and he was delighted by all of the animals, but especially by the true dog who followed us around.

Jeff hooked up the trailer and let us ride around in style on in the trailer on bales of hay and Mary packed a cooler filled with banana bread and grapes which the boys enjoyed throughly.  After visiting all the animals we stopped at the creek where Sebastian led the way in, regardless of being fully clothed. The other boys soon followed and found, to their pleasure, they could walk all the way across.

Not wanting to go wading myself with jeans on, I kept Sebastian on the close side of the creek where he watched the dog, threw rocks, attempted to sail Isaac’s shoes (the only one prudent enough to remove them, though they got wet anyway when he discovered they would float like boats) and protested only a bit at being left behind.

We ended the day with a glass of lemonade before I loaded the boys into the car with instructions to take off their wet things before getting in their seats. All five boys rode home in their underwear/diaper. They insisted that was also wet, but I thought it prudent to leave a few threads on.

The boys were tired out and after eating supper, Isaac who usually asks, “Do we have to go to bed yet?” asked, “Can we go to bed now?” Perhaps we should move to the country.


About Wendy McCollum

I am a single mom to five wonderful boys. Life is an adventure, with many twists and turns. We live in hope, always, for our great God can redeem all things. There are so many funny and precious moments that slip by too fast. Perhaps here I can save them for when my own memory fails.
