This past week has been so grim we have no outdoor photos! I just couldn’t bring myself to take my camera with me on the long, wet, muddy walks. Where is the sun? Where?

This week a good friend of mine invited my boys and I to visit her farm. Like a lot of farms this year my friend was left with a lot of lambs that had to be bottle fed – rubbish weather, not enough grass, no grass = no milk produced by mummy sheep – and she thought my boys would enjoy the experience of feeding them! My boys always love the farm but this time it was extra special, they were so excited to help out.
Gryffin was the first to start the feeding. The ewes without milk and their babies are kept in the barn separate from the rest to save confusion at feeding time.
Bear really enjoyed it, luckily his ‘baby’ was one of the oldest and wasn’t too bothered about his manic giggling haha!
After the lambs Bear went to ‘help’ with the cows, lovely Welsh Blacks who I believe are all currently pregnant. I adore cow noses, they are so ridiculously cute! Gryffin was still helping with the lambs – lots of hungry little mouths!
I think it’s every little boys dream to drive a tractor isn’t it? Bear wanted to drive this home! Worry not, the keys weren’t in it so the only thing he could do was switch the lights on and off. Still fun though clearly!
Meet Sam – the ex house dog rescue that now lives on the farm. Loves mud, children and his ball!
After being helpful and a lovely dinner it was apparently time to run around the farm like a loon!
And this is how you catch hyperactive children and carry them around on the farm ha!
After lots of running around and general silliness, Bear felt ready to embrace spring!
My favourite photo of the day, we all had a fantastic time at the farm and the boys left having made friends and memories for life =)
Today we spent the afternoon baking for Nainy’s birthday tomorrow. The boys were ever so excited, I let them do pretty much everything themselves =)
Serious concentration on Gryffin’s face while in the background Bear is pinching some sugar for his sweet tooth!
Working together =)
Apparently the butter ‘plopping’ was comedy gold!
They were so good at helping each other and sharing!
Om nom nom, chocolatey goodness.
Gryffin getting messy!
Bear being ever so serious.
The finished product! Smelling divine and oozing chocolatey goodness. I can’t wait to take them to my mum tomorrow. A job well done boys =)
Gryffin is 4 years old. He has been practising his writing for a while now and is actually getting pretty good at it. In school they’ve been thinking about things that each child is thankful for. My big boy came out with this –
