A Morning at DeAnna Rose Children't Farm

Bill is out of town for work this week, so, as usual, we kicked off the week with something fun and out of the ordinary, just so that daddy isn't missed too much.

We headed to a local Children's farm for the morning and had a really great time.  We didn't pay for anything extra (pony rides, fishing, goat food) because I was solo with the 4 kids and I didn't have any quarter, so we have made plans already to return with dad and do all of these fun things. 

None the less, we had a good time and got to see lots of goats, which I love.

Looking at the ducks.

Getting to know the goats.  Gus isn't a natural goat lover.

This goat seemed to be more interested in Dom than he was in it...

But in the end I think they all feel in love with the goats.  One day we will own goats.  One day.

And then we found a tractor for Dom to drive.

And Mom even took Josie out of the carrier for a few minutes to get a group pic.  The kids were bribed with food...which is why Berna and Dom and making those strange "chewing" faces.

Watching the fish swim.

Then we found some sprinklers and...the kids cooled off.

Next up, peddle tractors.

By this point we were all really warm and hungry.  So we headed to see the cows...which were a little disappointing.  They were diary cows, and only 2 of them.  So, instead we played in a Tepee for a few minutes and then headed home.

And that's it!

Because it's hot in Kansas

It is hot hot hot in Kansas.  For that reason we spend a lot of time in the neighborhood pool, and even more time in the backyard barely dress.  While, I'm always dressed, it's just the kids that I allow to run around in their underwear.  

I tried to get a few picks of them all together yesterday and it sort of worked...

We also each a ridiculous amount of watermelon...


A week on the farm with all the cousins

We were all there for a week--all 13 (soon to be 14) cousins.  It was wild and crazy fun!

Josie was their baby doll all week.

Partners in crime!

Dom was first in line for 4 wheeler rides--and actually really good at hanging on!

The Librandes

The other 2 clans went on to Michigan, while we came back to Kansas.  We miss them!
