I wrote about our trip back to the farm earlier this week for some apple picking. While we were there we were able to get in touch with the current residents of the farm and they more than graciously allowed us to walk around the property.
It was my first time back to the farm since we moved and I won't lie...I miss the openness and the fields and the freedom to just let the kids roam and explore and climb trees. I miss my sanity walk down the driveway every afternoon to get the mail. I miss the space and the sounds and the barns and the pond. The birds. The butterflies. The memories...
However, I don't miss mowing the grass at all and I kept reminding myself of that in order to hold back the tears, ha!
|Checking out the new horses in the field...willing them to come over =)|
|Despite Zoe's sad face...I am happy to have a picture of all four kids by the fence.|
|The gate, the gate! I didn't have to coach this picture at all.|
|All of the gang on the famous walk around the pond...|
|We found fairy tables...|
|Zoe found the boat...|
|Ella had to catch a ride on the wibbly-wobbly swing, of course.|
