A day at the farm

This past Thursday, my friend Amy from my Mom's group, invited our group to her parents farm.  They live about an hour away so once the boys were dropped off at school, Leyton and I headed to the farm.  As soon as we go there, Leyton ran straight to the riding toys.

He is a little bit of a wild man on motorized cars but he had a blast driving them.


We checked out the chickens and held the baby chicks.


Aren't they cute!

Next up, it was time to feed the sheep.  Amy's mom was so sweet and let all of the kids feed the animals.

We checked on the pigs and gave them a little food as well.

While we were in the barn, Leyton held the kittens.

At this point I realized, he is Rylan's twin and loves animals.  He was gentle and so sweet.  Before feeding the cows, we took a picture of all of the kids.

I know one day we will look back an realize just how sweet this time is.  This little farmhand helped feed the calf and collected eggs.  

Seriously, he was in little boy heaven.  The kids changed into swimsuits and ran around the yard with water guns and bubbles.  The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed lunch outside.

 Amy's mom went all out with lunch!!  Just look at this fabulous spread!

After lunch, we walked over to see the horses before Leyton and I headed back home for carpool.

It was such a fantastic day on the farm.  Leyton loved playing with friends and the animals too.

Weekend recap and a little backyard fun

Temperatures are finally, warming up here and we could not be more thrilled.  With that said, Friday morning Leyton and stocked up on bubbles, water toys and a new sprinkler.  As soon as we got home, Leyton went to blowing his bubbles.


It's funny how a bubbles and sunshine can brighten up a day.

I added boiling water to the baby pool but it was still a cold shock!

Once the boys were home from school, Rylan jumped in the water.  Oh what fun!

Friday night, Holden had baseball practice but they made it just in time watch Rylan's game.

Saturday morning Holden and Kevin left for his baseball tournament an hour away while the little ones and I went to Rylan's game.

Once the games were finished for the day, the boys were out playing in the water.


I think it is easy to see that we are taking full advantage of this weather!

Sunday, we were back out at the ballfields to cheer on Holden.


The game did not go as expected but a little Kona Ice can boost everyones spirits.

Once we were home, it was much of the same, water gun fights and sprinkler fun.

These three!

Monday, the boys were out of school for teacher inservice and with no big plans we had a glimpse of summer days to come.  We rode bikes to the park and found some new bike trails for a little off roading.

Leyton decided it was a little to bumpy for him so we stopped for a little snack break while Holden and Rylan rode around the trail loop.

We ate lunch outside and then made our way to the pool.  Yes, the pool is open here....don't worry,  it is heated.  The kids had so much fun playing with friends and enjoying this beautiful day.


As we were getting ready for bed, the kids all said, "Mom, this was the best day."  Ahh, I can see summertime fun coming soon!
