Fun Times at the Farm!

So, here is the reason I have been gone for so long...........I spent a wonderful long weekend relaxing at our family farm :)

My grandma, aunt, cousin and I all took a girls road trip to my uncles farm in Arkansas this past weekend for some time to relax and enjoy ourselves. It was the most perfect trip and just what I needed- I just wish we could have stayed even longer!!

I started my morning off with what I called my "farm breakfast": barley, cream, walnuts and fresh raspberries! I didnt even realize you could eat barley, but it was delicious!

Our first day there, my cousin and I realized we were dressed alike :) (Notice the guns on the wall in the background)

My uncle has THE MOST BEAUTIFUL property! It is so relaxing to wake up every morning and see this view outside!

Each morning, dressed in our pajamas and sweatshirts and holding our cups of coffee, we would go out to see all of the animals:
We would play with the cows for a bit:

Then head on over to the horses:

.....and then finish with the chickens (and peacocks!)
As a kid I used to visit the farm every year, but lately I have been so busy that I have not been up there for several years- I completely forgot how relaxing it is there! After this weekend, I came home begging Husband to let us buy some land up there and build a cute little farm house :) He's not going for it yet, but he seems to be warming up to the idea! The only problem I see is where would I go shopping?? But I guess thats what online shopping is for, right? :)

Looks like a lot of fun and a great relaxing getaway!

Hope you're having a good week!

Yes - that is what Online shopping is for...I love online shopping because I couldn't be bothered going into a mall or store with my toddler shopping is easier...but can be addicting!

I grew up on a farm on 500 acres! Looking back on it now that I live in the city, I miss the peacefulness of country living. Everything and everyone is so much more easygoing. It's hard work for sure, but rewarding. It looks like you had a fun time!
