A Summer In The Countryside : Part One

This summer was an odd one this year. With covid running rampant, most of our dream plans were cancelled and we choose to keep pretty close to home. Luckily, my parents were also isolating themselves and we were able to spend four weeks with them through-out the summer. A whole month total in the country-side! I am already missing my childhood home and already planning another trip. The odd summer turned heavenly! 

Our first holiday with them started in June. It was filled with wet walks along the old train path, identifying flowers, playing with Percy (the cat), resting in hammocks, collecting rocks and turning the gazebo into a museum, exploring grassy fields, and painting the picnic table again. Lots of adventure, outdoor times, grandparent snuggles, and rainy days. It was also my first attempt at an outdoor run - oh, the allergies!

Memories // Cows & Sunflowers

Another memory from 2019 was our weekend trip to the farm. Oh my goodness, I miss this place, it has been way too long. This particular weekend was filled with family, cows, farm chores, eating good food, puddles,  crafting, and sunflowers. Lots of beautiful sunflowers! 

The girls loved feeding the cows, they giggled whenever they got slobbered on. Bug (my oldest) really loved being part of all the farm action. She wanted to help with mowing the lawn, she fascinatingly watched as the farm boys poured cement, she even helped deliver snacks to them through-out the day. She wanted to do everything. Monkey (my youngest) stayed close to me. At this time, we still didn't know that she had a gluten allergy, so she was not feeling the best and had very low energy. But she loved the cows, she loved going on the side-by-side, she loved her lego! She also liked finding the salamanders and petting the farm kitties. I cannot wait to take her back there now that she is off gluten. I want to see her run with excitement. 
This was a great weekend. I cannot wait for new farm adventures, hopefully sooner than later. We miss the cows, we miss our family members, we miss those beautiful sunflowers, and the wide open spaces to run in. xo
