In September we took a trip to Oregon, on the west coast of America. My husband’s sister was getting married so we had a great excuse to take the Munchkin over to meet his American family and in particular, his great grandma. My husband is very close to his grandma so really wanted to make sure the 2 of them could meet. It was such a thrill. Jer’s mum lives on a farm so Munchkin had a fabulous time exploring, meeting the cows, playing in the dirt and generally, being a good ole’ american boy.
Here’s some of what we got up to:
We walked up and down the lane to see the cows
We picked handful after handful of plump, juicy blackberries and made blackberry shortcake. YUM!
Played in the dirt. All little boys seem to have an innate attraction to playing in the dirt, don’t they? Especially when they are wearing white…
Getting big hugs from daddy
This one’s my favourite. There is an old truck in the yard and Munchkin loved sitting on it. I think with his dirty face and the old truck he looks like such a little farm boy.
He loved being there and just made me realise how much we need to make sure that he gets to know nature and the great outdoors.
Farms are cool for little boys (and grown ups!)
