Evening falls

I decided to tear my house apart, just for something to do. I sorted through every toy (got rid of a contractor's garbage bag full) through lots of books (got rid of four totes of them), and generally made my house a mess for three solid days. So, we went over to the farm for some peace and quiet. And fed cows with Owen and Ashley. They have just a few penned up for health reasons, calving reasons, or selling reasons, so those three have to be fed, while all the rest are grazing. 

This is a White Park cow with her new calf. Isn't it cute, all shiny clean and white?

Yes, Lily had to have her bag (complete with one of our old cordless phones) to feed the cow.

This weekend


Dad heading out with the baler

Hoyt is always trying to stand now and pulls himself up on everything, including Gilbert.

Making a break for freedom

Elsie running up to see the kicker baler in action. 

Orianna and Lily on the round bales

I saw some geese flying by, which is really early. Or really late. Depending on where these geese are going. 

Lily, eating pizza on the tire swing in her swimsuit

Pool reflections

Ashley showing Hoyt the hay. For some reason, it really made him nervous.

Owen unloading hay


Unloading hay by the light of the moon. And the flash.
