My April 10 on 10 was a fun one. One of the countless benefits of being able to work from home and and hang out with my kiddos, is having the flexibility to go on fun field trips! We went to Fogle’s Farm in Harrisonville, MO, where we got to see them hook up cows for their milking and play with pigs and baby cows! The kids were in heaven! Tessa and Max were overcome by the cuteness of the baby cows. Tessa would randomly grab Max and hug him as tightly as she could because she “just can’t handle their face!!”. Max was a mad man through the whole visit, and was totally covered in mud by the time we were ready to go. He’s definitely an outdoorsy kid.
We even bought some of the fresh raw cow’s milk…boy is it tasty!! The farmers at Fogle’s were wonderful with our kiddos, even letting them pour milk into the baby cow’s bins, and answered all of their crazy little questions with so much patience. They have a tent at the Lee’s Summit Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays, so be sure to stop by and meet them and set up a tour of your own! They are the best! We will definitely visit again.
Now that you’ve gone to the farm with me, check out what’s happening over on Jamie Faulkner’s 10 on 10!
This past weekend we had the honor of visiting my grandparents in Grove, OK for the weekend. What a joy they are. These are the spectacular folks, who even though they live several hours away, talk to us on average three times a week. They are determined to have relationships with us and our kiddos even though there is geographical distance between us.
We had a wonderfully relaxing time with them over the weekend. The coolest thing to me was how my daughter, Elliana had a connection with them even though she has only seen them once or twice in her life. We’ve now been home for a day and a half and she’s still talking about them. It brought tears to my eyes seeing my Grandpa snuggling little Ella and reading books to her, the very same way he did with me, my sisters, and my cousins. It was so sweet to see Grandma cradling Ella’s baby dolls, upon Ella’s request, and to hear my little princess admiring her beautiful knitting handy work.
Brian got to work with Grandpa in the “Shack” (wood shop) on a little project as well. Grandpa has such attention to detail and is of course amazing at what he does. This is the same talented guy who made the beautiful recipe box from my previous post.
We are blessed beyond words to have such a wonderful family, particularly these Grandparents. We look forward to many more visits with these simply amazing people.
