Milking the Cows and other fun stuff on the farm

Titus had been milking later in the morning and since the kids and I have been getting up earlier we went with him for a few mornings.  The kids loved it.  We normally go in the evening, which really doesn’t work very well since we all come home starving and there is no one cooking. 🙂   Since we aren’t going to be dairy farmers for very much longer I took a ton of pictures! Oh my goodness!

James actually understands where the lime is supposed to go:

I think Gideon just goes for all the Daddy hugs:

Gideon is also too scared to walk any further in the barn with out holding someone’s hand:

Mister Hot himself:





(Not sure what’s with Titus’ face. Guess he was in a playful mood.)

Begging for a ride on the tractor:


I think their new favorite thing to do is go for rides on the four wheeler.  Yes I know that doesn’t look very safe. And yes I kinda wish they had helmets on.  And yes I don’t drive very fast at all.

There is a sense of freedom that you get in the country.  I hope some day to move to a quiet little spot.
