The Art Barn... kind of place! Y'all have got to go to the Art Barn in Woodstock. Farmer Sue has a little farm where kids get to hang out with, brush, feed, pet & hold if they can catch! all kinds of farm friends. I wish I could take them all home with me {the animals - how cute are they all!?}. You also get to go on a tractor ride, eat lunch, and paint a picture in the barn. Lee loved it and so did Webb, Henry & Morgan. Farmer Sue is so much fun - you've got to go!

There's one! This is Spice. He used to be cooped up in a barn all the time but now lives with Farmer Sue and gets to run around in the pasture except during meal time. "Spice is Nice!"
Little ducklings!
Olivia the pig!
Feeding the donkeys. Lee & I talked about how farming & taking care of animals is hard work, but the best kind.
Tractor ride ~ so glad Molly & Carrie didn't have any babies on the farm!
Love little Morgan!

Happy's Happy Birthday in St. Simons!

We went to St. Simons to celebrate Whit's dad Happy's 60th birthday! It was a lot of fun and October just may be the best time to go to the beach. The weather was beautiful and perfect! I hope Happy felt special and celebrated for his big birthday!
Lee & Thomson were all about the celebration with hats and balloons. Maybe Lee will understand how to share with Thomson by the time Happy turns 61!
Isn't Thomson the cutest thing?!?!
I felt like this trip was a sweet time for Lee and me. I think this will be the last time we go to the beach as a family of 3 and it was just special. Lee and I had so much fun walking the beach, playing in the puddles from the tide, looking at airplanes, birds, butterflies, shells & boats, and just enjoying being outside together. I know it will be even more fun with two boys but for now it was a great time with just Lee.
