I’ve returned to stay with my cousin Lana and her family for a well needed visit. Here’s a post from my last jaunt through these neck of the woods, called Arkie to Okie, crossing state lines.
I recently came from the beaches of Florida where Palm trees populated the skyline and the nearest wild anilmal was a burnt spring breaker playing “Dude, where’s my beer?”. You can imagine how this new setting is refreshing and definitley provides a sense of country comfort. Let’s take a walk!
This house in the woods doesn’t classify as a farm, but there are times I feel like it should. Dogs, cats, chickens, roosters, a goat, duck and one curious pig named Peppa (that follows me on my run every morning).
With an enthusiastic 4 year old boy and a one year old little girl that I nick-named “Spider Monkey”, you’ve got to make time to burn through some energy. I feel like this front yard is a great start!
Yep, that’s a trampoline you see in the distance. This spring loaded circle-o-fun provides hours of endless games and the appropriate amount of nap inducing entertainment!
Meet Lana and her spirited little boy named Titus (or “Spider Man” depending on the day).
I don’t think anyone can get on a trampoline and not smile… Love. to. Jump!
This is my favorite trampoline photo. A super-mom shining in the moment!
Moving on to the next option for kid-fuel ditribution, yard toys!
Hopefully tomorrow will bring a long walk and more playtime. This is all of course dependant on the unpredictable weather of Arkansas. Rain, sunshine, flash floods, tornado? All possible. We’ll see!
