Haykid Summer

Haykid Summer

Summer is for hay. When Dad is out in the field, we try to have some fun when we visit and take a meal. I love that the girls get to experience this life and see that every part of farming and ranching is important.

On this particular day, he just finished up with a job and started stacking the bales in rows for a client to pick up. The girls got to hop on the tractor with him and help him for a bit and LOVED it. They will be out there in no time.

Afterwards we let them run across the rows for awhile and it brought back a lot of memories of my cousins and I doing the same at that age. I mean, are you even a Farm/Ranch kid if you’ve never done that?

Long live summer and unplugged, rural childhoods.

Horse Camp

Horse Camp

The girls wrapped up horse camp today and had so much fun! Here are a few pictures that I borrowed from someone else. I love that they get to experience these things. They were able to do wagon rides and drive the mules!

They did crafts, went on trail rides, learned about horse anatomy, tack, and the girls got more comfortable with riding bareback.

I wish every kid has this opportunity. So glad they were able to spend a few days with friends doing what they love.

Long live summer.
