Friends on the Farm

We had some dear friends visit our farm this week. And this little darling loved the sights we had.

You’ve heard me talk about my sweet friend, Chez Misty (she is an awesome cook). Here she is in the Dairy Parlor (fancy name for the room where we do the milking). My brave friend announced she wanted to milk. Soccer Boy was elated. It was his turn to milk this particular evening and he was more than happy to share the chore. Here he is offering words of wisdom to Chez Misty.  She listened intently and asked great questions.

And before we knew it, she grabbed that goat by the teat and folks, we had milk. She was a natural. And determined to finish the job.

There was deep concentration goin’ on and trigger thumb prepared to gingerly move that bucket out from kicking goat feet.

And this sweetie decided she needed a close up inspection of the whole ordeal. I mean really, what kind of view is that from 2 ft off the ground?

Big sister provides the lift Cutie needs for her discerning eyes.

Because okay, who could resist this face? And yes, that is the beginning of a shiner on that eye. You know how limber little ones can be? Well, this little cutie-pie actually was able to kick herself in the eye. I can’t even imagine being able to do that to myself. I would need to be taken by ambulance to the nearest hospital to get myself back into an upright position. Amazing. I guess it’s a good thing we don’t stay that limber. We’d all be walking around with black eyes.

“Hey, mister. You’re blocking my view”

“Whatch’ya doing in there, Mom? Can I come in?”

“No really. I want to come see. I can climb this gate. No problem.”

“Okay, fine. Can I at least ride the llama?”

Llama is unsure of this small creature that walks on only 2 legs.

And then that other 2 legged creature decides to touch her. Uh. Oh.

And this just says it all, doesn’t it?

    Oh my goodness I can’t believe how the twins have grown. I guess when you don’t see kids for awhile you just assume they’re the same size they were the last time you saw them.
    Great pictures Kath!
