On Saturday, June 5th we went to this cute little place called Lattin's Cider Mill. On the weekends they sell fresh homemade apple fritters. YUM! They also sell produce and meat that they have grown and raised right there on the farm. To start off Braden went straight for the john deer bike. There were lots of little bikes and 50 cent rides the kids could go on. After Braden rode around for a while we we off to the animals. For 60 cents you can buy a bag of food to feed the animals. We mainly fed the goats, that was a little crazy cause the big mamma goat about ripped the bag out of my hand and trampled her babies just to get to the food. I guess was one hungry nursing mamma. Too bad I didn't get a photo of that, but she probably would have eaten my camera. Braden was a little afraid of the goats since she was being I little aggressive. However, he loved the chickens, pigs, ducks, bunnies, cows, and the many birds.
Taking a little doughnut and milk break.
Those were a lot of teenage chickens...not the prettiest stage of life.
This peacock was great! He sure was showing off and making a lot of noise!
I have never seen one so close with its feathers all out, pretty cool.
Emmitt loved the pig, I was hoping pigs don't bite since he was sticking his little fingers in the cage. Emmitt is such a sweet little boy, I just love him so much!!
He is just so adorable! Love his sweet face in this picture. Me on the other hand, I think I was laughing at Brian who was taking the photos...not sure what Brian was doing to be so funny.
Emmitt loving his Mamma! Well, I think he was actually just getting a little tired.
Trying to keep Emmitt from eating dirt while Braden was climbing the tree behind us.
We will most certainly be back to Lattin's again soon.
Today I couldn't help but remember the birth of our little Emmitt, the week he spent in the NICU felt like forever in that moment. Today I look back and think how blessed I am it was only a week and that we have a happy healthy little one year old boy. Here are a few pictures of our past year with Emmitt.
Very happy mamma to take our Emmitt home after holding him all week with so many tubes coming out of him, now he is tube free.
He has such pretty lips...guess he got those from me :)
Well he didn't stay tiny for very long, he turned into our little chunky baby for a while.
Braden just loves him!
Finally moving around helped to thin hi out a bit....and you can totally see how much his face shape looks like Braden's and Brian's, even if the rest of him looks more like me.
Brian and I have been married for four years. We have completed two degrees at BYUI, been blessed with two beautiful boys, and have recently opened our American Family Insurance Agency in Lacey WA. We hope to keep our family back in Idaho updated as I attempt to catch up this blog...
