Just another day at the farm... and giveaway winner!

The kids are off of school today and tomorrow.  The big question is always, "what to do?"  on days off.  Thankfully, they're still at the stage of childhood where mostly anything is fun.    

We have a really, really neat working farm only 20 minutes away.  It's a farm run like it was in the late 1800's.  They have a original 1800's house, a big barn, animals and even people dressed the part.  And the best part is, it's FREE.

I told them we needed to wear our bandannas.

 I love the windmill!

 Oh Bessy...

 Piggies.  They were fighting over their food like... well, pigs.

 Hank the horse.  This guy is huge!

Like I said, I loved the windmill ;)

Shut the barn door!  Half of it anyway...

My affectionate miss.

They ran everywhere.  It's getting hard for me to keep up.

 Love my girls hair against the radiant blue sky...
 Wow.  My littlest is taking full advantage of being in the woods.  I didn't see him when I took the picture so you can imagine my chuckle when I was looking through these (look to the right.  My husband still didn't catch it even after reading prior sentence)!

And the winner of the huge-mongous giveaway is:
Thanks so much to all the participants!
