An Evening at the Farm

We got the heads-up from the farm the other day that sweet corn was ready. We can eat that stuff by the truck-load so we grabbed some friends and headed out there. The weather was surprisingly not 1,000 degrees and the farm is always a beautiful place to explore. It was nice evening with some of our favorite people!

B could wander for hours. With her "treasures" in her hand of course.

10 months and still no teeth. Still such a sweet smile though!

Grandpa in his element.

She was much more interested in what the world had to offer off of the blanket. : )

She could have picked all night.

There were also opportunities for *ahem* educational moments.  The farm grows crops and hogs so we visited the nursery barn to check in on the baby pigs. One of the sows was in labor and had had 2 of her litter already. I think our crew got her a little unsettled so she didn't deliver any while were were in there but the girls definitely still had questions! : ) 

That's a lot of mommas waiting for their time!

Welcome to the world little guy!

Cousin Clark works on the farm with his daddy and enjoyed showing everyone the in's and out's of farm life. Here he's showing us the feed for the sows.

We left the delivering room and checked out some of the piggies that were a tad bit older.

To think those sweet little guys turn into this...

Of course after all that picking we just had to sample our home-grown corn. So a special bedtime snack of corn was in order!

Yum! Thanks Glenwood Farms!
Brecken got to try her first ear the next day and I was impressed with her dedication! No kernel left behind was her motto! 

Corn season success!
