Going on Gator rides to check on the cows and their calves
Spending time at cousin Livi's house
Going to the Fire Station, where cousin Kayla is training to become a fire fighter. The kids got a tour of the fire station, were able to sit in the fire trucks, and try on the hats and jackets.
But the highlight had to be when they got to spray the fire hose. Being Kayla is in training, learning the pumper truck actually goes toward her certification.
We loved our visits with Grandma and Grandpa Olson.
It was so awesome to do another trip to Fawn-Doe-Rosa, where we again fed the animals
and, best of all, spent time with our friends from Madison, Heather, Al and Jack.
We were so excited to see Leah and her family and I loved this picture of her with her baby.
We also enjoyed the quieter moments at Gaga's Farm.
And eating s'mores
Swinging on the horse tire swing
Looking at Gaga's beautiful flowers
There were many other moments that I did not capture on camera. We enjoyed spending time with my other grandparents, my aunt and her family. We spent two afternoons at my friend, Emily's family farm, where the kids spent hours playing in the barn and even learned how to milk a goat. I was disappointed that I didn't have pictures to document our time spent together. But sometimes it's more difficult to enjoy and engage in the moment when always behind the lens of a camera. Instead we will try to etch those moments in our hearts.
