A Busy Week

Every year we get to take care of Gram and Grandpa's house while they are away. We spend our days feeding the pets (including this friendly mouse who has taken the bunnies' place at the tiny tea table and is being fed a carrot)...

enjoying the wildlife...

and the lambs...

visiting the anthills and tide pools down by the bay...

and climbing the beautiful old trees in the orchard.

What's this? A tomtegubben's door; I wonder if they are at home... You might be wondering, "What is a tomtegubben?" Well, I've never seen one, so I can't tell you. =)

Grandpa and Grandma have the best playground! We took rides in the weed wagon...

and climbed the bean trellis...

and played in the dirt.

This looks very familiar. Pea is on the left; her mama on the right (same dirt, a little while ago).

We had a grand week on the farm, full of sunshine and fresh air!

What an idyllic place to spend time as a child (or adult for that matter). I always wanted to live on a farm.

I enjoyed each adventure you shared during your week on the farm. Those two little sweethearts made the journey delightful!

When I look at that last photo of Morgan and Raegan running down the hill, I think of the tv show Little House on the Prairie. Remember in the promo part it shows Laura and (I think) baby Carrie running down the hill. Baby Carrie falls down in the tall grass.
Just thinkin'!

Such sweet, peace-filled pictures! Looks like fun - if only grandma and grandpa had been home, too!

They're so precious. And they look so healthy and robust and carefree. A thousand times better for them to be out in the great fresh air than to be cooped up indoors. Wonderful glimpse into happy childhood here....
