On the farm

Last week I took Josiah to a nearby farmstead with some friends and their little ones. He got to show off his John Deere hat and boots. As you can tell from this picture, he had a blast seeing the least the ones that were behind the fences. He was not a fan of the goats.

But he did like the cow bench, and every bench swing we came across.

Josiah loves to play in the pantry. Here's a picture of when he got stuck in there - his foot is in the organic toaster pastry box.
Have a great week!

My little flirt

Josiah and I went on a tour of the Public Works department today! He had fun seeing all the big trucks, but at times was more interested in the other kids and/or their strollers. Here he is in the big warehouse where they keep the salt for the streets.
He is flirting with some little girls who were just off to the left of this picture...
I wasn't brave enough to try to climb up there with him. This bobcat made him so excited that he fell down.
Happy Easter everyone!

Not 'goodbye', but 'see you later'

This is my Maw Maw. She is my great-grandmother - my dad's grandma. She passed away on Saturday at the age of 91. She was an amazing and beautiful person and I will miss her. She lived in Belle Chasse, Louisiana so after we moved when I was 2, I only got to see her once or twice a year. These pictures are from the last time we got to see her in May 2008. She was full of life - she loved to dance and play cards and she was always happy and made everyone laugh.

I am so thankful that she got to meet Josiah!
Here they are taking a nap together...
Here she is telling me stories and making me laugh!
She always used to ask me "are you happy?" and say "just make sure you're happy". Now I know she is truly happy and always will be.
