My Farm Hands

Just a quick update with LOTS of pictures.

My mom and I took the boys to Florida last week. We just got back Sunday night. Mr. JCrew had fun watching all the dogs.

We did a lot of fun things while in Florida... and it didn't include Disney! I'll probably be writing several different times to cover all the things we did, but I wanted to share the animal pictures first.

As mentioned many a times, my sister manages a farm sanctuary. Once neglected, unwanted or abused farm animals come to her farm to live in peace and with a lot of love. The last time Little JCrew was there, he was 4 months old. I knew he would have a blast, but I didn't know what Mr. Brigglesworth would think.



He warmed up quickly. He liked the cows, until their long tongues came out to grab the food.





Goats were more his height and he loved them!





He had no problem walking right into their pasture and feeding them lettuce. This is when I knew he was very comfortable.


The horses were a favorite. They followed us everywhere.




A boy and his donkey.


The pigs were fun and LOVED their belly rubs. She fell asleep within two minutes!



Mr. Brigglesworth looked so BIG walking on the farm by himself. He really gained a lot of confidence on this trip!



We've been getting our eggs from a farm in Tennessee, but it was great for Little JCrew to SEE the chickens lay the eggs.


He then told the chickens they couldn't have their eggs back. Did you know chickens will eat their own eggs?



Of course, the turkeys were a hit, too. Little JCrew had no problem pointing out their body parts.



We couldn't forget to say, "Hi" to Butterscotch the goat. Her legs are her disability, but she wanted to play so bad when she saw the boys there!



Logan now has her house on the farm, so her personal animals are all right there; including tortoises in the front yard!



She has a smaller one inside the house. Both boys enjoyed her.




I think I have as much fun on the farm as the boys do. Seeing them all giddy with excitement gets me excited!



This will definitely be the highlight of our future trips. The boys can watch the animals grow! And soon, they'll be big enough to help with the work.



Thank you, Logan, for allowing us to come play with the animals. Love you!

  1. Wow, what a little boy (and parent!) paradise! Those pictures were so sweet. It looks like you've got some serious animal-lovers there!
