I had the chance to spend time with my son and his family on their "farm" a few weekends ago, and just fell in love with the serenity, calmness and beauty of it all. We celebrated the youngest granddaughter's birthday....OMG....she is 7 years old now! Oh my how time flies! Anyway....we grilled out, the weather was just excellent. Not too hot or humid that particular day, but a little overcast which kept the temp down just a bit. We all relaxed, kicked back and enjoyed each other and the beautiful day. Other than the "grand" opening her gifts, the highlight was getting to know their two new additions to the farm family.....Leah and Scamper. Gorgeous horses. Leah is an Arabian and Scamper is a Quarter H orse. Both are brown and beautiful as the pictures below show. We had a wonderful time with them. Giving them apples and mint horse treats!
We took a little hop around the land and noted that one of the neighbors' horses had parked himself in their carport. If you enlarge the photo above, you can faintly see the horse under the carport in front of the red truck. What a hoot!
Here are some random views of the family "farm" so you will understand why I was so taken with it all. I have been there many times before, but for some reason, this one was super special! Enjoy!
I just had to get a pic of these cute little red spotted mushrooms that were everywhere....don't see these in the big city! One of the last photos shows the side yard of the house. What a wonderful swing....it holds about four people! Then, had to include a pic of the other two grands....Claren and Marlie...in front of Leah. I plan to retire from the corporate world in two years....and I want to find me a place like this away from the city! ~sigh~ The bull in the fence has become a pet due to the little grand not letting Pop take it to the "market" because she loved him so much. She is getting more and more attached to ALL the animals on the farm and has named every last bull, calf and cow, fish, dog, cat, bird...uh, I think you get the idea. Until next time.....go hug a horse....you will be a better person because of it! :o)
