Summer 2018 on our Farm

I know I have only been blogging once in a blue moon, but you really can't blame me with a full time job and 2 littles: a toddler that's a handful, and an infant that's 2 handfuls ;-)
Violette is now 2.5 years old and Gabby is 9 months. We have now been living our dream life of living on a farm for almost 2 years.  This is our second summer living in the country and we love it! Wouldn't go back to the city or suburbs for sure. It is so green, peaceful, and so much fun here. We are always outside and there is always plenty of activities to do. Great way to raise children without them being stuck inside and/or get dependent on electronic devices.
Here are some pictures from this summer. Only captured a few chickens in the pictures, but we actually have 40+ chickens, 4 sheep, 2 rabbits, and a pig.. (and 2 cats and a dog). Garden is also blooming, so far getting some tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, and spaghetti squash. So we spend our time outside gardening, four-wheeling, chasing chickens, swimming in the pool, jumping on the trampoline, swinging in swings, having bonfires, taking long walks along the perimeter of our property, and hanging out on the rocking chairs on our front porch watching the nature in front of us. WOW, thank you God for fulfilling the dreams of our heart so early in our lives - we are so blessed to be able to enjoy all of this in our youth with our children still very young. I am so thankful for all that I have and I dare not ask for more! :-)
P.S. Scroll all the way down and you'll see my cute kiddos wearing traditional polish highlander outfits - they wore to a polish festival /picnic.

More to come hopefully sooner than later :-)
