Farm Days 2015

This year marked my third year reminiscing about my country upbringing, with kids in tow, at NC State's annual Farm Days.  I've documented our previous adventures here and here. I seriously love this event.  And it makes me feel a lot less guilty about my kids never getting to participate in 4-H.    

Country boys wear irrigation boots.  City boys wear rain boots.  

Anytime Everett scores time in the driver's seat he's gleeful, but behind the wheel of a tractor, he was even more giddy.  

The highlight of the field trip for me is always the baby chicks.  I'm still devastated that I didn't get a photo of Everett holding his, since I had to help him.  

The highlight of the trip for the boys?  Definitely the creamery ice cream. 

Group photos of kids this age are always entertaining.  So here are four:

It's sometimes nerve racking as a parent exposing your children to adorable baby farm animals.  Will they suddenly abhor the sight of bacon?  Refuse the eat chicken in any form?  Kaden and his friend Mark put my fears to rest through the two best comments of the outing:

Kaden (looking at the turkeys):  "Mom, they look so, so gross, but they taste so, so yummy!"

Mark (after checking out the pigs):  "Miss Katie, when I see that piggie, I want to shoot it and EAT it!"

Well, OK then.

Photo Dump for February, March, and How is it Possibly Already April?!

 Valentine's Day Party for Preschool:

Trip to Chick-fil-A, courtesy of Easter card money from Gigi and Poppy:

Easter egg hunts.  Lots of them.  

Dyeing Easter eggs for the first time.  Kaden will be five this summer.  We're terrible parents.  

The Easter Bunny toned things down a little this year.  The kids didn't notice.  

Spring Party for Preschool.  I missed it, but my awesome friend sent me photos of Kaden:

Kaden had a fun time with Poppy at the nature center when we visited Kinston one weekend:

The boys and I hit up the art museum one day, enjoyed the Spring weather, and picnicked on the grounds:

Breakfast continues to be the worst meal of the day:

Lots.  And Lots.  And Lots of bike riding.  

Career day at preschool.  Kaden went as a real-life Octonaut, AKA a marine biologist:

Love how he is sounding out and trying to write words on his own now:

We had some extra snow:

Marbles got a new fire truck.  The boys were thrilled!

 The amount of destruction Everett can exude in a five minute time frame never ceases to amaze me.  

These pictures are completely out of order.  Oh, well.  I'm behind and can't catch up, so I figure this is better than nothing!
