Breakfast on the Farm

We've been laying low these past several weekends, trying hard to stay close to home and not make too many plans.  It would be going too far to say they have been relaxing, life isn't exactly relaxing with small children, but they have been a nice change of pace to our usual summer weekends. This past weekend though there was an event we just couldn't miss: Breakfast on the Farm.

June is Dairy Month in Wisconsin - there are lot of different things planned throughout the state.  This year our county's farm breakfast was held out in Junction City and so we piled up the car and headed west.  After breakfast we went on a hayride, looked at the animals in the petting area, walked over to the barn to check out the cows (this didn't last long because one of Mama's biggest pet peeves is seeing cows jammed into a barn.  It makes me, quite honestly, irate.  Cows should be out pasturing, in the grass, not standing in mud.  But I digress...), checked out the tractors, and ended the morning with, of course, some ice cream.  

On Sunday we celebrated Father's Day with Papa and Busha and Keaton told Bush all about the "big tractor with a Really Big Arm, like this *stretches arm as high as he can*" and Hutton told her about the "llamas (alpacas, actually) and the grey llama bit the white llama in the dupa and the white llama spit at him! so we all backed up."

For me, the goats would typically be my favorite part but Trey, the baby chocolate cow, stole my heart with his little cow moos.

As you can imagine, this outing was pretty much heaven for my tractor/farm lovin' boys.

This looks like SO much fun! I'm sure this was still relaxing even though it was "doing something!" So glad you had a good time!
