This was an extremely spontaneous decision for me. First, Abbey normally naps from 9:30-11:30a and from 2:30-4:30. I decided to leave the house around 9:45a, with plenty of snacks and fluids as we jetted out to the farm in East Austin. Abbey doesn't sleep in the car. So, I knew this would mean she would only get one nap for the day. But, I feel like Abbey has been somewhat deprived of fun adventures that I would have normally planned had cancer not shown up. We have been cooped up a bit for the past 9 months during the weekdays.
We arrived at the farm around 10:15am. Apparently, many other moms also read the blog post about the Free Fridays. I squeezed under a tree to snag the last "parking space" available. I was determined to give these kids a fun experience today. And...the experience did not disappoint. I captured some photos of our little adventure at the farm. This is where the cuteness comes in. I cannot get over how cute Abbey looks in her little hat and workout outfit!
|This really isn't a great picture, but I love the expression on the face of the boy next to Abbey.|
And then there were these MASSIVE pigs. I mean...the biggest pigs I have ever seen in my life.
|You really can't tell how big they are by these photos. I tried to get Luke to stand in front of one so I could show Drew how big they were, but Luke doesn't pose for photos.|
|Of course, Luke needed to check out the big tractor.|
|Obviously, these weren't roaming at the time. But, I think it is so cute how Luke was helping Abbey.|
We left the farm without any produce or other products in hand. Apparently, the farm was not prepared for the number of visitors it received at that time (thanks to that blog post). Also, they have a kids' camp going on at the same time, and it was snack time for the kids. So, the area where the small stand was located had a huge crowd. We decided to head back home for lunch. But, it was a fun experience for the kids.
Those pictures were ok. But, this is really the serious cuteness I am talking about...
|Abbey and Luke were racing tonight in our house before bed. I love that Abbey walks around (and runs) with her finger in her belly button. She loves her belly button.|
|She despises wearing onesies because doing so denies her access to the belly button (and honestly, I am not really a fan of onesies either, due to her >98%height.)|
