Yesterday we went out to the country. Grandma lives out in the country, as well as some aunts and uncles, so we always have a lot of fun on our trips out there.
Alex insisted we pay a visit to Baxter, my aunt & uncle’s chocolate lab. Baxter is absolutely wonderful with the kids and Alex is at the perfect stage of boyhood to really develop a deep love for such a pup.
Baxter says hi.
Elliott had fun playing with all the toys while we were there…
A John Deere…
And an All Terrain Tricycle!
It’s so big and rugged that even Alex can ride it comfortably!
And what mom wouldn’t love a picture of her kiddos walking hand-in-hand down Grandma’s country road?
Now….I’m about to try my hand at recreating a type of ornament my mother made when I was little bitty. In fact, I might not have been born yet. I dont’ know. I’ve been looking online to find instructions or tutorials for this ornament, but have had no luck. So, if they turn out, I’ll make a tutorial and post it soon! Wish me luck!
