In April, my brother-in-law is getting married on their family farm and his bride-to-be asked me to do their wedding pictures. She's a brave girl. So we did a weekend trip out their way to go to the wedding shower and spent Sunday on the farm talking about pictures and letting Grant have some of the best fun ever.
Grant asked us on the way over what animals he'd see. "Will I see cows?" Yes. "Will I see horses?" Yes. "Will I see eagles?" No. "Will I see pigs?" You get the idea. There are LOTS of animals there and he was just so damn excited from the minute we got out of the car.
We rode out the the ceremony site in a cow pasture on what I call their "golf cart on steroids". Grant was SO excited about riding in it and seeing all the cows up close.
Then it was down to the pond - which is also the intended reception site unless it rains (lets hope it doesn't rain, ok?) - for some more fun with the dogs and some general "boys will be boys" dirtiness for Grant.
|Digging in the dirt...of course.|
So now back towards the barn we go...it was time to see more animals!
|Fennec foxes, aren't they cute!|
|Sasha the lemur was hungry for grapes!|
|One of two huge turtles (tortoises?)|
|Donkeys! Look at that lil' baby. (And check out the one|
in the background that is clearly sleeping something off.)
|He tasked himself with filling the wheel barrow with hay.|
|Farming is tough work :)|
|Nothing better than a wheel barrow ride!|
