Down on the Farm

Filed under: Pictures — Luke @ 11:48 pm

Last month when we had the chance to make it back to NY, we also took the opportunity to go to the farm where Grandma grew up and Dad used to visit every Saturday (almost) as a kid. There were so many fond memories of the farm that we thought it would be really special to show that to Mara and Campbell. It was a real adventure for them. Plus it was a chance to hang out with the whole family including Uncle Bob and Aunt Steph and second cousins, Abigail and Jack. There was so much to do and see.

First we just took a little trip over to the barn.

Then it was down to the garden.

After that we took a turn on the tractor.

Next we fueled ourselves with some lunch.

And then it was off to the creek to catch some critters.

  1. Wonderful! I’m so glad the kids are getting a chance to experience the farm– I have happy memories of visiting there with Brenda when we were in college–

  2. I love this documentary, and I’m glad Mara and Campbell had a glimpse of farm life. My brother Douglas and I had our start on the farm in Reidsville, NC; and I have wonderful memories. Many lessons in life are learned on a farm with beef cows, a milk cow, pigs, and chickens. In summer, there were always blackberries and watermelons to pick, a warm stream for play, and an abundance of lightning bugs to put in jars! I rode my bike, Douglas rode his little tractor, and he far exceeded me in miles. I hope Mara and Campbell have more adventures down on the farm!

  3. Bert and Ernie were the pet ducks out there on farm for the Luke and Bob and their cousins Emily and Annemarie. Great time and such a nice day.
