Day at the farm.
Spending the day at the farm is one of our favorite pass times. The kids get to run around and play with sticks, rocks, heck anything they find and you can always find stuff at the farm. One day Drake and Jess came home with a cow skull, this time we found a horse skull and other bones around a tree. It is so exciting to see all the animals we can find and to explore the woods.
Drake even got to take out his 22 this time and shoot a armadillo. He loves hunting for armadillo, so he was excited that he found one today to shoot. The kids love driving at the farm, and this time even Carter was big enough to get behind the wheel with a little help. Heck Carter had another first by catching his first fish (perch) at the farm pond, as Drake racked up a few more fish to his record.
The day ended great when we caught up with Ramsey, Jess's older brother, in the tractor and Drake got to head out with him. He was going to help him unload some deer feeders and spend the rest of the day with his Uncle. Jess, Carter and I packed up and headed home so Jess could catch a flight for work, and Ramsey brought Drake home later that evening. It was another wonderful day at the farm and I look forward to many more.
