Two dear friends, Kim and Jay Humphrey, are resident caretakers for a farm about 20 minutes north of our house. Tara and I have been wanting to pay them a visit with the children for quite a while now, so when a new lamb entered the picture, we set a date! Here the Humphreys are relaxing in front of the old farm house.
When we arrived, the children headed straight for the barn. It was so special to see them peering through the fence taking it all in...the sheep, the goats, the horses, and of course, the kitty.
The children weren't the least bit afraid and they loved every minute of exploring the pasture and the barn, and going up to all the animals. Gigi came along as well.
Natalie and Nathan even got to help with the chore of filling the giant water buckets.
Tara and I turned around to see this...Samantha and Samuel heading out all by themselves to say hi to the sheep!
Eventually Jay put a saddle on sweet Maya and we all got to take a little ride.
And to end our fun afternoon we got all four kiddos up on Maya for one last picture.
Many thanks to Kim and Jay for helping us make memories we will not soon forget. We all had the most wonderful time!
