On The Farm: Family Hay Day

On The Farm: Family Hay Day

Sunday may be my favorite day of the week! For our crazy busy little family it seems like Sunday is the only day when we can slow it all down and just be present together. And being cramped together in a tiny tractor cab helps too!

Ren and I rode along with Dan to feed hay this past Sunday.

Seriously, how did I get this lucky?! (swoon…)

And when you have a baby on your lap, you don’t have to get out and open gates! 😉 feeding-hay-in-the-snow (2 of 9) feeding-hay-in-the-snow (3 of 9)Wish I could say the cows were as toasty as we were. It was a snowy morning and they were ready for breakfast!

I always think the herd looks so pretty when it snows but at the same time I hate seeing their backs covered in snow. I know they are built for it but it still makes me shiver.

We’re getting there. But he’s MUCH more interested in how to drive the tractor!

Ren was asleep about 20 minutes into the bumpy tractor ride. I didn’t mind! He’s so big now I don’t really get to cuddle him anymore so I made sure to enjoy every minute of it!

Nothing brings our family together like Sunday tractor rides!

Counting down the days until next Sunday,
