Farming

Helping water the cow

Noelie needs a push
We are dairy farmers. This last year was really hard for farmers everywhere. This winter didn't make it any better. We only have a few cows that need to be taken care of so I pack the boys up and we head outside.

It feels soooo good to be outside after this bitterly cold, long winter that doesn't want to let go. (FYI they are calling for snow in 2 days!) Being outside is really good for the boys too. I have also tried to get out for a walk every day that it is nice out in an attempt to loss some of this baby weight. The fresh air puts them right to sleep almost as soon as we get back inside.

This was Sam's first time seeing a cow! She even mooed at him. He just seemed to study it, like he does with everything these days. This was also was the first time I took Noelie out in his Kid cart. Usually I put them both in our double stroller but he was eating, and the mud season is almost over.

I am so glad the temperature is warming up, the snow is melting, and we can finally start to come out of hibernation!

Has it been a long winter for you too? What are you doing now that you can get outside?
