These are a Few of My Favoite Things

The County Fair

I LOVE going to the fair. I am totally a farm girl at heart. I love the ducks, horses, chickens, and most of all the Cows. I have always wanted to milk a cow. Every year we go to the Fair and I say "this is my year". I have had luck with milking goats. But this year I got a real treat, that's right. A big Heifer- totally engorged. It was so awesome. I totally milked her. I smiled for the rest of the day.

I am really enjoying Minnesota. We have a local organic garden that I am in love with and I get all my produce there. I also am able to buy farm fresh milk from a near by farm. I let the cream settle to the top of the jar and make my own butter. It is sooo good. Mmm mmm. With my fresh chicken eggs I am really in heaven.

Who Knew little kid rides were this much fun? It was so fun to see Elias get excited about the rides.

We camped out Friday night after going to the Fair- then Saturday we went to a Strawberry farm and picked and ate. We came home with almost 50lbs of Strawberries. Did I say 50? Yes. 50 Lbs. I have already made LOTs of Jam. And today at Chruch somebody brought Rhubarb to give away. So, more Strawberry, Rhubarb Pie.

I love this cat.  So much.   He is our family therapist, our entertainment, and my mid-life motherhood fulfillment.  And he is naughty... ...
