Down on the Farm

Today the Lord gave us a very special playdate! We got to spend the morning with Ms. Crystal and Hope, some of our friends from church. It was so much fun and we made lots of wonderful memories!
Wubs and Hope were reaching in those hanging feeders to get food for the chickens. I couldn't believe how much Wubs loved jumping in and becoming a little farm hand!

Here Wubs is holding an egg that had just been laid. She got to feel its warmth, and then place it in the bucket.Here are the two donkeys. Molly is the mommy donkey but she was the smallest. We thought that was funny!

Ms. Crystal was so kind- she even allowed the girls to pick daffodils from her garden.
Here the girls are eating some yummy cookies! Playing on a farm makes those tummies hungry!
This is Hope's playhouse. Her 'real' house is a farmhouse originally built in the 1800's. Everything on this farm was absolutely beautiful.
Dress up time! Wubs first selected the horse costume. Yee Haw!Bella, the fairest of them all. wink.
Wubs decided being a poodle would be more fun!
Mommy and Bella, as a baby chicken. (Bella was a little nervous. The roosters kept saying,
"Cockle Doodle Doo!!!". I thought they only did that early in the morning. Apparently, they also make that sound when they get frightened as well.)

Hope the bumble bee and Bella the chicken- that's quite a duo!The girls loved gathering the fresh eggs from the chicken coop. Ms. Crystal allowed us to bring home some of the eggs, too! The girls have been talking about our time at the farm all afternoon. God has certainly blessed us with many beautiful friendships!

"A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed."
- Proverbs 11:25

  1. Oh Sarah I wish I could have been there with you on this one! You got some great pics of the girls. And that farmhouse is so kept looking. Wubs looks so much like you and Bella looks like a little girl :( Oh how I miss you all so much. I feel like I'm missing huge milestones in the girls' lives. God is sovereign even in that and boy do I have to trust that He knows best!
