Kev had another Monday off, so this week I took us all to Wheeler Farm. I'm hoping to continue to be really proactive so we can make the most of our afternoons when Kev is home. He was able to spend the morning doing yard work with Aspen so it was a productive day all around.
There weren't many people at the farm since we went so late in the afternoon. It was nice to have the place to ourselves.
I don't remember the last time Kev came to the farm; maybe when we had Mary take our gorgeous family photos at the beginning of my pregnancy with Lincoln...?? One of these days I want to set up a tour of this yellow farmhouse. It only costs a few dollars, but in all my visits I still haven't been through.
This week the weather has been so nice- we've had a break from the rain and it has yet to be too hot to live (now that Kev has our swamp cooler hooked up and it's not 80* in our house).
We indulged Aspen a bit and bought tickets for her to ride the new animal train with Kev. They took it around the farm while Linc and I snacked on animal crackers by the barn. I hope she enjoys doing these things without Linc while we can still get away with excluding him ;).
As always, I'm so glad we have such awesome areas to visit so close to home. And I'm glad we're getting Kev in on the action when he has a day off. Later this week he'll have a 7-day stretch of work without a break and we're dreading it. Additionally, he still hasn't been feeling awesome. So getting this outing on the schedule really means a lot to me.
Here's to making the most of it! Even though I feel like I'm deep in the trenches of childcare and there isn't a way out. KIDDING IT'S AWESOME ALL THE TIME OVER HERE. You can also find me on:
