This week we went to Fox’s farm, a sweet little outing here in Lexington. A group of us goes there at Halloween and again at Easter every year. We get to go on a hayride, look for eggs (or baby pumpkins), pet all sorts of animals, roast hot dogs over a fire, sit on a pony, and plant a flower. And it’s only $6.50 for each little one! What a deal, huh? And the family that owns the farm is so, so nice-we always feel like we are back with old friends.
There are 2 little series of pictures I HAVE to share. One of the reasons I wanted to upgrade my camera was to be able to get better action shots. With my point and shoot, any motion was always captured as a blur. Sweet PoorGil gave me a great one for Christmas a few years ago and I am thankful every time I touch it. My other reason was that I wanted to get blurry backgrounds in pictures-so technical, huh? My camera has lived up to both requests quite well!
If you know Nate, you know that he hates to have anything foreign on him-and that kid hates to have his hands dirty. He taught himself how to use a fork pretty early to avoid the dreaded dirty hands at dinner. Forget trying to get near him with a sticker-mayhem I tell you. His teachers laugh because the 2 year old class specializes in hand art-painting the kids hands and making something out of them-needless to say-Nate is not a fan.
